Key Facts

Welcome

Cranleigh UK opened its doors in 1865 with the purpose of providing the local Surrey community with a first class, all-round education. The Prep School (Junior School) celebrated its centenary in 2013 and the Senior School will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2015. It is therefore entirely appropriate that Cranleigh Abu Dhabi should open its doors in September 2014 with similar aims of supporting the newly born Saadiyat Island community. During the last two and a half years, teams from Abu Dhabi and Cranleigh UK have worked closely to capture the essence of what Cranleigh is, and to translate it into a community which contains a strong flavour of Abu Dhabi, Emirati culture and the cosmopolitan nature of the city.

Learning principles

Cranleigh prides itself on a curriculum that will not only enable its pupils to achieve exceptionally good examination results but will also engage them in the excitement of learning, and prepare them for the wider world. Abu Dhabi Cranleighans will grow up to be independent, thoughtful and well-rounded individuals, confident in their ability to question, analyse and express opinions. The school's aim is to strike a balance between the academic disciplines and the wealth of extra-curricular activities on offer. Cranleigh seeks all-round excellence, sharing the same ethos as Cranleigh School, UK.
