A unique state boarding grammar school for girls and boys in the Kent countryside.

Cranbrook School

Sixth Form Admissions

Nearly 90% of our Year 12 entry is drawn from the school’s GCSE student roll.

Each year, however, we accept a small number of students from other schools.  Sixth Form entry (for day entry and boarders alike) is subject to availability and subject to the following minimum requirements: Those candidates who have studied 9 or fewer subjects at GCSE must achieve a minimum of 45 points at GCSE, or the equivalent for candidates overseas, and those candidates who have studied 10 or more subjects must achieve a minimum of 48 points at GCSE, or the equivalent for candidates overseas, where:

  • Points will be on a 1-9 point scale, where Grade 1 = 1 and 2 = 2 etc.
  • At least a Grade 6 at GCSE in the subject chosen for A Level (or its nearest equivalent).
  • At least a Grade 8 at GCSE Maths to study Further Maths at A Level.
  • At least a Grade 4 in English and Maths at GCSE.

(Please note that this is a minimum requirement and that the majority of external candidates are predicted to attain significantly superior GCSE qualifications.)

We usually have very few boarding spaces for Year 12 entry and this will vary year on year.  Only those students who have the highest predicted grades will be invited for interview when the registration period has closed and when we are confident of the number of spaces we can offer.  For day students we normally have an additional 20 spaces available for external students wishing to join Cranbrook.

FEES:
As one of the country’s few State boarding schools, the education provided by Cranbrook School is free to day students and boarders alike. The only charges levied by the Governors go towards boarders’ accommodation and live-in costs – far lower than Independent sector fees.

 

Boarding Fees for the 2022/2023 academic year:

Years 12 -13   – £5,750 per term (£17,250 per annum)

For any enquiries, please contact the Registrar.
