“Cranford aims to ensure 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.”

At the heart of everything we do as a Junior School team is ensuring that every child is happy and enjoying their time at school. As a small school, we place a firm emphasis on really knowing every pupil and developing a bespoke approach to ensure they grow into well-rounded individuals who achieve their fullest potential.

Pupils benefit from small class sizes and a strong pastoral system that gives them the confidence to flourish academically, creatively, spiritually and socially.

From the first morning drop-off, my child was put at ease and welcomed into the Cranford family, the school were brilliant at helping them to settle quickly, make friends and make the most of school life. As a family we were amazed by the number of clubs and extra-curricular opportunities for our children.

“Support, care and a strongly nurturing approach, focused on each child’s well-being, runs through the school. The ethos in the Junior School reflects our belief that building self-esteem is key to success and that happy, confident children make good progress. I really enjoy sharing the journey with the children in my class and their families.”

our CRANford values

Our five values (Generosity of Spirit, Happiness, Motivation, Confidence and Challenge) underpin all aspects of school life and pupils, staff and parents are encouraged to reflect these in their work together. Our most important value is Generosity of Spirit and even our youngest pupils are encouraged to think about their role in the community and the impact they can have on others.
