Welcome to Tranby. We are a thriving 3-18 HMC co-educational day school. We provide a carefully judged blend of academic challenge, pastoral support and extra-curricular opportunity amid the glorious surroundings of the historically significant Tranby Croft. We are committed to bringing out the best in everyone and have a ‘no ceilings’ approach to what our pupils can achieve.
Examination success is only part of the picture. Art, music, drama, dance, sport, community service projects and many clubs and societies create a vibrant atmosphere and help all pupils to flourish and enjoy their time at school. Everyone matters and the pastoral care at the school ensures pupils feel supported and valued throughout their time here.
The best way to get to know the school is to come for a visit, experience the buzz and energy of Tranby Croft, enjoy the stunning grounds and, of course, meet the pupils who make it such an exciting place to work and learn. You’ll be sure of a warm reception whether you are a prospective parent or pupil, or a former pupil.
