  • “Our children look forward to Cranedale as the ultimate Yr6 experience. As always they have not been disappointed. We would particularly like to mention your tutor’s understanding of one of our pupil’s physical difficulties, giving her a climbing wall experience she will never forget”

  • Staff had excellent knowledge and good rapport with the students.

  • “Appreciated the way that you fitted our small group in with other schools and the flexibility shown with regard to our option choices. The only thing missing from this ‘home from home’ is a morning newspaper and the Times crossword!”

    Fiona Hall.
    Polam Hall School

  • Really excellent course covering all the sections of the specification requested. Students were encouraged to use and understand the "buzz words" needed for the specification.

    Excellent delivery with enthusiastic tutors who made a real effort to learn the student names and answer any of their questions.

  • All tutors were exceptional - knowledgable, flexible and with just the right balance between informality and expectations with our students.

  • “Students enjoyed their fieldtrip experience again this year, the facilities, food, accommodation and the helpful nature of the tutors. Our 2 members of staff who had not been to Cranedale before were shocked and pleasantly surprised by what you offer and the attention to detail. Thankyou once again for making the visit an educational and beneficial experience”
