  • Having not been to Cranedale for 8 years, I am delighted that such high standards are still apparent. The quality of teaching is excellent, especially our tutor who delivered a comprehensive skills module and really motivated the girls to step up to the A2 standard. You are always so accommodating to our needs and willing to adapt the course programme to meet our requirements. Thanks once again for an enjoyable weekend.

  • “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”

  • “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”

  • 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.
