WELCOME TO CRANFORD COMMUNITY COLLEGE, an 11-19 fully inclusive, multi-cultural academy with a community focussed mission for achieving excellence.

The academy and its community are justifiably proud of the tremendous achievements of Cranford students and staff year-on-year and the consequent recognition that the academy achieves nationally and internationally, and at Key Stage 4 and Post 16, as a result of their efforts.

Cranford students (all groups) and their expert teachers consistently out-perform the national trends.

The relentless drive for high standards and achievement, combined with a breath-taking and unique range of opportunities has resulted in impressive grades and personal skills, and promoting better life chances for all of our students.

The academy has the highest standards over time in Teaching, Achievement & Progress, Student Behaviour, Leadership & Management, Safeguarding and other aspects, such as spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

An impressive catalogue of awards continues to endorse the high achievement and rapid progress that the students and the academy make, year on year.

Most recently, Cranford Community College has been ranked as:

One of the very best comprehenive school in the entire United Kingdom (all 4 nations) for 2024 in The Times / Sunday Times ParentPower List


The exemplary work of the academy over the last 20+ years has been shared with other schools and academies locally, nationally and internationally.

Cranford has played a key role in London's Gold Club, as a ‘Leading Edge’ academy with the SSAT, through the PiXL and Challenge Partners networks and in association with the ‘National College for Teaching & Leadership’, just to name a few.

Students and staff also benefit from its projects with partners such as the Institute of Physics, the British Council, various embassies 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.

Annual Reviews


The success of the academy is largely due to the dedicated staff that make all these things happen and to students, parents, partner organisations, alumni and ‘friends of Cranford’ who participate so enthusiastically and work so hard for success.

In these ways, Cranford works together as a united and harmonious team to achieve such amazing results and create so many opportunities.

Cranford continues to find creative ways to excel despite various challenging circumstances, most notably in recent years being the impact of the pandemic on young people, deprived communities and rising costs alongside reductions in funding for schools / academies.

The latest (2024) ranking at the top of the lists of Best Comprehensive School in the U.K.  proves that Cranford's efforts are successful in overcoming barriers to success and building resilience.

I, and the Academy Trust Board, remain extremely proud of the academy, its staff, its students and its community.
