“Sport is a big part of School life. Everyone has the opportunity to be involved and we play fixtures against all the top schools most Saturdays.”

"One of the Top 20 State Schools in the country... the school that really stands out is Cranbrook."


“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 significant events through to performances in daily assembly.”

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



"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. 

Cranbrook is unique in the state sector. We are very proud to be the ONLY state grammar school in the country that is 13+, co-educational and caters for both day and boarding students. We succeed in combining academic excellence with a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of each pupil
