Cranbrook School

Cranbrook School is a unique state day and boarding grammar school for girls and boys in the heart of the Kent countryside. We have been educating students for over 500 years, supporting them to fulfil their true potential through our core values of kindness, integrity, curiosity, aspiration and individuality.

Our students thrive thanks to the breadth and challenge of our curriculum, and our emphasis on growing character as much as minds. Opportunities for independent thought and leadership are many. Our boarders are the beating heart of the school and enrich our small community with different cultures and perspectives. Boarders enter in Years 9 and 12 in one of our small six Houses. Pastoral care is outstanding and students can board weekly or fully. Boarding at Cranbrook is fun, busy and happy, and friendships for life are made with children from around the world. We have excellent accommodation in our Houses, skilled House teams, and an extensive programme of activities.

Our aim is to provide an outstanding all-round education with academic fulfilment at its heart.”

Academic success at Cranbrook is important but is only one part of our mission to develop great human beings who will make a positive impact on society now and in the future. Our curriculum is designed to help each child find academic fulfilment and enjoy learning for its own sake. We believe exam achievement flows naturally from this.


The co-curriculum at Cranbrook aims to light fires in young hearts by nurturing enthusiasms and talents outside the classroom that will build their character, enable them to thrive.
