Our Pre-School and Reception classes offer children the very best possible start to their educational careers, thanks to our highly-qualified staff and superb resources.

As part of our school community, Pre-School and Reception pupils not only benefit from our specialist teachers but also from fantastic whole school facilities, including our swimming pool and specialist music and sports facilities.




The progressive, nurturing educational ethos that makes Cranford one of the UK's most successful small independent schools runs right through from Pre-School to Sixth Form, giving all our pupils a real head start in life.

We know that choosing the right school for your son or daughter as they set off on their school journey is one of the most important decisions you will make as parents. The starting point for us in choosing Cranford for your family is our emphasis on developing happy, confident and well-rounded young people.

Children thrive when they feel secure and we place great emphasis on strong relationships between teachers, children and their families. We know that all our children make a flying start to their learning, developing learning habits that will form the foundation of their school career. Our philosophy is simple: to develop happy, confident and motivated young individuals who possess a genuine sense of kindness and generosity of spirit.

Children follow a specifically tailored and richly diverse Early Years curriculum during school hours. There is an exciting range of enrichment activities and after-school care available at the end of each day.

This website and our prospectus will give you a flavour of our warmly welcoming school. We encourage families to book a personal tour and come and see our unique Early Years learning environment for themselves.
