  • Excellent - Very welcoming atmosphere. Creative learning at its best. I recommend this centre to everyone I talk to! The tutors engaged fully with all pupils.

  • 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.

  • Many of my students expressed their suprise at "how good its been"! " The best trip they'd been on" was the verdict of another. What more do I need to hear to justify coming again next year?!

  • There are few places in life which strive to do everything and more that "what it says on the tin," but in eight visits to The Cranedale Centre, I have always found this to be so. Our girls have had a simply marvellous field trip and we will be back next year!

  • 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.
