In our most recent inspection (March 2022), Ofsted Inspectors said: “we all agree that we would love to be a student at Cranbrook.”

The report continues: “Cranbrook School is full of kindness, integrity, curiosity, aspiration and individuality. This is a school steeped in history, tradition and is full of character. Pupils feel part of the close-knit community. They say that there is always someone they can talk to if they are worried about something.”

“Pupils are highly motivated to do well. They have a thirst for learning and show mutual respect. The high expectations staff have for pupils lead to excellent behaviour in lessons and at social times. A feeling of calm and purposefulness pervades the school.”

“Teachers, including those who teach sixth-form students, are experts and have good subject knowledge.”

“Pupils develop independence, resilience and curiosity during their time at school. They are prepared well for their future lives. Many Old Cranbrookians that attend the school’s sixth form move on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge. Pupils benefit from the careers guidance and support they receive.”
