“The ethos of the boarding provision is based on openness, trust and respect that celebrates individuality and achievement.”


“Music and Drama enriches and pervades our ethos, from huge productions and shows through to daily performances in assembly.”

"The 2014 production of Oliver is truly outstanding. A cast, orchestra and crew of more than 90 Cranbrook students perform to raptuous applause."
