We strongly recommend that you contact us to arrange an individual visit to Cranford House. This is the best way to see the school in action, to focus on the areas you are most interested in and to have your individual questions answered.

Admissions Overview

At Cranford House, places are not offered due to academic ability alone. Our school is a place where children with a whole host of interests both inside and beyond the classroom thrive. We aim to provide a well-rounded, opportunity-rich education to children ready and willing to make the most of it and it is this fit that we seek to identify during the admissions process. Prospective pupils are not expected to prepare before our entry assessments and the process is designed to allow everyone the chance to showcase their talents, abilities and enthusiasms.

Entry Points

The usual entry point into the Junior School is Reception (rising 5). Where space permits, however, we are happy to accept pupils into other year groups. Please contact the Registrar for more information. At the end of the Junior School over 90% of our pupils move into the Senior School in Year 7.

Registration

We are now accepting Registrations for Reception 2020. Early registration is essential to ensure a place on the waiting list and registration requests are processed in the order they are received. A non-returnable registration fee of £75 secures a place on the list.

Registration Form


Reception

Pupils entering Reception receive a formal written offer of a place, together with copies of terms and conditions, medical form and acceptance form, up to 12 months prior to the expected joining date. The acceptance form, full medical declaration and a deposit of £500 should be returned within one month.

Years 1-6

Where space permits, pupils wishing to enter the Junior School in Years 1 – 6 are invited to an assessment day during which they undertake short academic assessments and have an informal meeting with the Headmaster (or one of his Senior Team). Test results and recommendations are reported to the Headmaster who makes a final decision to offer a place. Pupils receive a formal written offer together with copies of terms and conditions, medical form and acceptance form. These must be returned with a deposit of £500 for pupils entering Years 1 and 2, and £750 for pupils entering Years 3 – 6.
