WITH a strong heritage of 85 years of educational excellence, Cranford House has a growing reputation

WITH a strong heritage of 85 years of educational excellence, Cranford House has a growing reputation as one of the UK’s leading small independent schools.

Its achievements have recently been recognised by a second place nationally in The Sunday Times’s Parent Power tables for small independent schools and a position in the top five schools in Oxfordshire, courtesy of The Daily Telegraph, not to mention an “excellent” inspection report.

Cranford House is proud to offer a modern education based firmly on traditional values.

With small class sizes and year groups on offer throughout the school, a happy environment where every child is recognised, valued and encouraged to succeed is guaranteed.

And succeed the pupils do, with the school’s latest superb GCSE results proving that the Cranford House model of academic ambition within a non-selective environment is a winning formula.

The school welcomes boys aged three to 11 and girls aged three to 16, having recently seen its friendly junior school transition to a co-educational model, welcoming boys and girls throughout.

As part of a raft of further exciting developments, the all-girls senior school will soon enjoy the addition of a new sixth form, while all pupils will benefit from a new state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics centre.

It’s clear that there has never been a more exciting time to join the Cranford House community.

Headmaster Dr James Raymond says: “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 our planned 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.”

Cranford House is in Moulsford on the Oxfordshire/Berkshire border and operates an extensive school minibus network throughout both counties.
