Open days at Cranmere
Every autumn we hold a series of group tours for prospective families who are considering joining our fabulous school. These are mainly attended by families who are looking for a Reception place in the following autumn, but we are more than happy to welcome parent/carers of children for other year groups as well. The tours are led by our Head of Early Years, Mrs Gunasekara, and our Headteacher, Mr Paul Gilbert, assisted by our Year 6 house captains.
Although our group tours have finished for this year, we are very happy to welcome families into school to visit us on an alternative date. Please complete our online form to provide your details and we will be able to arrange a time for you to come in to see the school and meet staff. If you have any queries please contact us on 020 8398 5580 or [email protected].
In addition, we have put together a short video tour of our school, which is on the front page of our website - we hope that by watching this you can get a flavour of our school.
If you would like an information pack, you can collect one from the school office (between 9:30am and 4:30pm during term time).
Where are we?
We have little or no passing traffic because we are tucked away behind Sandown Racecourse and behind the railway line. Cranmere Primary school is in a very quiet, mainly residential area with fields and horses at the front and huge grounds at the back. The main road you are looking for is 'The Woodlands'; if you are coming from Esher station direction, this road runs parallel to Lower Green Road (which is the road behind Sandown, where Esher High School is situated). The Woodlands turns into Douglas Road (eventually) and then Arran Way is off Douglas Road.
A note on parking
As a general rule, parking in our car park is normally limited to staff only. However, because many of these open days are 'after hours' then we do hope that you will be able to park in our car park without any problems. I'm afraid you cannot park in the small car park just in front of our gates because it is only for the residents of Arran Way. However, the good news is that there is free on-street parking in the surrounding roads, you just need to allow an extra 5 minutes to walk here. There are also some parking bays at the end of Arran Way on Douglas Road - these do have some time limitations (at the time of writing there is no parking between 10am and 11am) - however, the parking wardens have been known to change these timings so please check on the day.
