Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher ImageWelcome to Cranford Community College an 11-19 multi-cultural academy with a community based mission.

The school and its community are rightly proud of the tremendous achievements of our pupils and staff and the recognition the school achieves nationally and at GCSE and A level as a result of their efforts. Cranford students and teachers out-perform the national trends. The relentless drive for high standards and achievement has resulted in impressive grades promoting greater life chances for all our students. The school is accredited by OFSTED as being consistently ‘Outstanding’ over time in Teaching, Achievement, Behaviour, Leadership & Management and all other aspects of the Ofsted framework, such as spiritual, moral, social and cultural develop.

A catalogue of awards continues to endorse the high achievement and rapid progress that the pupils and the school make relentlessly year on year.

The exemplary work of the school is shared with other schools locally, nationally and internationally. Cranford plays a key role in the Mayor’s Gold Club, as a ‘Leading Edge’ school, within the Challenge Partners network in association with the ‘National College for Teaching & Leadership’, for example. Pupils and staff also benefit from Cranford’s leadership of a ‘Teaching School’ Alliance, a ‘Science Learning Partnership’ across 8 London boroughs and its projects with partners such as the Institute of Physics and key universities.

It is always amazing to reflect upon the enormous range of curricular and extra-curricular events, activities, trips and enrichment opportunities that have helped to develop and realise the potential and the differing talents that exist within our student and staff population. The success of the school is due to the dedicated staff that make all these things happen and to pupils, parents and ‘friends of Cranford’ who participate so enthusiastically and work so hard for success. In this way, Cranford works together as a united and harmonious team to achieve such amazing results and create so many opportunities.

I remain extremely proud of the school, its students and its community. Cranford is how an outstanding school should look.
