The Prep School has launched a new buddy system. Pupils from Year 7 and 8 have been visiting younger Prep School pupils from Year 3 and 5 in the mornings, to offer support, a friendly word or help with their work.
It is a pleasure to see the older children take their responsibilities so seriously and interact with the younger ones so naturally. This ongoing initiative ties in perfectly with ‘responsibility’ – our value of the month for September. It is worth noting that when Cranleigh opened in 2014, our Year 7 and 8s were a similar age to the children they are supporting today. It is so rewarding to see how they have matured into highly valued members of the Cranleigh community.
