The Cranleighan Abu Dhabi

Welcome to the second issue of our school magazine,
‘The Cranleighan Abu Dhabi’.

The magazine is broken into the following main sections:

Educational Perspectives
Views and opinions from a number of distinguished, global thought leaders provide a powerful backdropfor education today.

The Academic Journey
Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior Schools take Cranleighans on a learning journey they will never forget.

Moral Education
We are honoured to have been one of the leading schools within the pilot group of 19 who have worked on the new Moral Education Programme, as initiated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. 

Ex Cultu Robur
The Cranleigh motto, From Culture comes Strength, provides the context for our rich and varied visual and performing arts programme.

 Sport in Action
‘Mens sana in corpore sano’…’a healthy mind in a healthy body’ underpins the philosophy of all physical and sporting activities at Cranleigh.

Hidden Curriculum
From Duke of Edinburgh to campus celebrations like National Day, and from day trips to the Mangroves to skiing in the French Alps and trekking in the mountains of Nepal, there is as much to be learned from community life on and off campus and as there is from lessons in the classroom.

Cranleigh Houses
The House spirit is alive and well at Cranleigh. All three schools run a vibrant programme that includes competitive activities such as Bake Offs, Hip House Holler, Battle of the Bands and of course, the all important Sports Days. 

Cranleigh Awards
End of year awards recognise students whose achievements demonstrate exceptional levels of effort and/or attainment, as well as exemplary commitment, talent and determination.
