A very warm welcome to the Cranbrook School website, which we hope will give you an insight into the high quality of education you can expect your son or daughter to receive at this school.
We are 750 pupils strong, 250 of whom board in one of our six superbly furnished boarding houses. We are also proud of our grammar school status, especially as we have recently changed our year of entry for day pupils from Year 9 (age 13 years) to Year 7 (age 11 years). We have a strong sense of mission which you can read about in our 500+ Vision Statement (click here to view).
Cranbrook School is celebrating some excellent individual performances at A-level this and a great result overall. Despite the increased challenge resulting from recent reforms, results have remained at a good level. Of the grades achieved, 70% were at A*-B and 90% at A*-C. Two students, John Goodwin and Angus Thomas – achieved four straight A* grades, with a further five achieving three A* grades. Nine students have gained places at Oxbridge colleges and a host of others have gained places at their first choice universities. Headmaster, John Weeds, commented, “Our students have performed superbly this year especially when the changes to A-level are taken into account. It is even tougher to gain those top grades now and it is great to see so many of our students achieving them. None of this would be possible without the excellent work of our teaching staff on our students’ behalf. They really have gone the extra mile in getting to grips with the new structure of A-level with the big emphasis now on final exams at the end of two years and at the same time teaching to a phenomenal level to get these results.”
