Admissions Overview

Cranford House welcomes applications from students to join the school post-GCSE from September 2020. With a broad Sixth Form curriculum and an outstanding array of co-curricular opportunities, Cranford House students are extremely well-placed to develop the skills and experience necessary for a successful transition to either university or the workplace.


Cranford House offers a number of Scholarships for entry at Sixth Form to seek out and reward gifted students and ensure the largest number of talented students can benefit from a Cranford House education. Scholarships carry a value of 25% and may be combined with a Bursary up to the value of full fees at the discretion of the Headmaster.

Academic Scholarships are offered in addition to Scholarships for excellence in Art, Drama, Music and Sport.

Entry Requirements

An offer of a place for entrance into the Sixth Form at Cranford House is conditional upon the student achieving a minimum of five GCSEs at Grade 5, including English and Maths, with Grade 6 in the subjects proposed for study at A Level, unless specified otherwise.
