I have been fortunate in my career to have coached sport for all age-groups including adults. At Cranmore there is a great sporting tradition and it is a real privilege to lead a strong team of staff who give our pupils such remarkable sporting opportunities.
Lorcan O’Brien, Director of Sport at Cranmore.
At Cranmore, our vision is to be regarded as an outstanding school for the provision of sport, at all levels; and across our 4Cs – Competitions, Curriculum, Co-curricular and Clubs. Our aim is to engage every pupil, ensuring physical activity through enjoyment and encouraging values such as grit, determination, honesty, proactivity and willingness to go the extra mile.
Pupils have the opportunity to learn over 20 sports including skiing, golf, rowing, football, rugby, cricket and swimming. Pupils can benefit from seven specialist staff, with inter-school matches and competitive fixtures held regularly. A high proportion of pupils also play for local clubs, with many going on to represent District and County. With football we have established a strong link with Chelsea FC, who come and run coaching sessions. Other sports available include: archery, athletics, biathlon, badminton, cross country, fencing, gymnastics, hockey, smart sport, squash, dance, tennis and table tennis.
