I am delighted to be able to share with you our vision for an exciting period of building on success here at Cranford House.
With a strong heritage of 85 years of educational excellence, Cranford has a growing reputation as one of the UK’s leading small independent schools. We are proud to offer our pupils a modern education based firmly on traditional values and this forms the foundation of our Strategic Plan. Cranford House offers an innovative, opportunity-rich education within a welcoming and nurturing community, which draws out the natural potential of each child.
At the heart of this is our commitment to ensuring that our pupils are happy, confident and motivated and that their self-belief, characterised by curiosity, resilience and a spirit of collaboration, inspires them to achieve at each stage of their individual learning journey. Cranford House pupils make excellent progress within a broad and challenging curriculum framework. This framework encompasses the traditional and the innovative, prioritises opportunities for enrichment and independent enquiry and establishes an enduring ethos for learning.
We are hugely excited by the future enhancements to Cranford House which will ensure that we continue to provide our pupils with an excellent education, fit not just for today, but also for the future.
We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
