Our focus for our students is to develop independence through individualised learning plans.

It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of the 2019 school year! 

It has been an incredible year with fabulous teaching and learning, and students and teachers should be very proud of their efforts and achievements. Our CORE values of Commitment, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence was evident at Cranleigh, every minute of every day.

Farewell and best wishes to our Year 6 Graduates and to our school leavers who embark on the next exciting chapter of their education. We will miss your smiles, energy and hard work.
