  • The best residential trip I have been on in over 20 years of teaching! A very clean, warm and welcoming centre with beautiful gardens and delicious home cooked food! All the tutors were exemplary; they were interested and engaged with the children and made a real effort to find ways to help students with specific learning needs.

  • 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.

  • All centre staff are very friendly and helpful. Thank you to the kitchen staff who with a fuss free approach catered for our gluten free student. Each tutor was enthusiastic, engaged with the students and made huge efforts to learn names - the students enjoyed the work.
