About Cranford House
Cranford House is leading, independent day school with a national reputation for excellence situated in Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Offering an innovative, opportunity-rich education, the school is entering an exciting second phase of development relating to its 2020 Vision.
Cranford House Sixth Form is due to launch in September 2020, in addition to the extension of its successful co-educational provision into the Senior School, also in September 2020. This will see boys admitted into Year 7 and Year 12 and represents a natural and exciting next step on the school's educational journey.
Cranford House opened in 1931 with just one pupil, on a site that now hosts Moulsford Preparatory School. It later expanded and moved to its current location with larger facilities. The school has recently enjoyed an ambitious programme of capital development including the addition of a modern sports hall in 2014, the development of a new IT suite, enhanced performing arts spaces, a new food technology and art and design suite and our Junior School extension. Work is currently underway on our Sixth Form build in readiness for it welcoming students in September 2020.
