Breakfast at Cranleigh School
Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce members were treated to breakfast, networking and an informative presentation at Cranleigh School this morning.
The venue for our June networking breakfast was the Reading Room at Cranleigh School, with headmaster Martin Reader presenting a potted history of the school before sharing details of its business model and future plans.
Guests were fascinated to hear the story of Cranleigh School along with its role as the largest employer in Cranleigh, employing over 350 staff and making extensive use of local businesses for other services.
Cranleigh School is a community focused institution, with many pupils and staff playing an ongoing role in various aspects of village life.
Chamber members heard about how seriously Cranleigh School takes its responsibilities to the village as a large local employer and how it plans to sensitively manage any future growth in an increasingly global economy.
Following breakfast, Chamber members were taken on a guided tour of the school, learning about the history of the buildings and hearing some interesting stories about how life at the school used to be.
