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 celebrating 500 years of our rich history as a school – set up to provide schooling for local children in 1518 and still going strong.

Please do visit to find out what we have to offer and what we have planned for our Fifth Centenary (click here to view programme).  We are 750 pupils strong, 250 of whom board in our six superbly furnished boarding houses.  We are also a thriving grammar school and have recently opened up our Admissions to Year 7 (11+), in addition to traditional entry for day and boarding pupils at Year 9 (13+) – click here to view our Admissions information.  We have a strong sense of mission which you can read about in our 500+ Vision Statement (click here to view).
