Who we are
The Cranleigh Foundation provides bursary-assisted places at Cranleigh School and Cranleigh Preparatory School for children in need of a boarding education. Foundation bursaries are awarded to children who have experienced family trauma or bereavement and who would benefit from Cranleigh’s supportive environment as a result.
The Foundation is a fund which, over the coming decades, will build to a substantial endowment to support bursaries to provide a Cranleigh education for Foundationer pupils.
'The Cranleigh Foundation has opened up the remarkable educational world of Cranleigh School to our child, inspiring him and offering life-changing opportunities….We have confidence that he will now be given a solid, all-round preparation for success in his future life.
The support and opportunities afforded by the Cranleigh Foundation have transformed his life-chances and enabled him to realise his full potential. The Foundation is a truly wonderful feature of Cranleigh School and is very much to be valued.' — Foundationer’s guardian
The Fund is still in its early days but, since it was set up in 2007, has funded 12 Foundationer places. The School seeks the support of the community to continue to fund these life-transforming opportunities. Although some parents or guardians of Foundationer pupils might be in a position to make a financial contribution towards their child’s education, most will not, and the Foundation funds are built on the assumption that it will fully support all Foundationers.
'I am so grateful for all you have done to help our family and my child.' — Foundationer parent
