“Excellence In Everything” A Message From Mrs Aplin Cranbourne College is a welcoming 11-16 comprehensive school in the heart of Basingstoke. The school is situated in a leafy suburb, close to the town centre on a large green site, with excellent facilities, including extensive playing fields, specialist arts, media and design workshops as well as a large indoor swimming pool. We also benefit from specialist vocational teaching in hair, beauty and computer science. The school’s core purpose is to meet the needs of each individual student. We are proud of our specialist unit for the teaching of students with dyslexia. The College aims to provide every student with a positive learning experience. Excellent teaching and great out-of-lesson opportunities are key priorities. We aim for a happy environment where children feel secure to challenge themselves and are confident to try new experiences. The school has a strong student-focused team of tutors and full time pastoral staff. Our curriculum (choice of subjects) is diverse, because we would like students to play to their strengths and follow their interests, as well as giving a good grounding in the national curriculum. It is important to us that students achieve well here so that they make the best future choices at the end of five years, hence our strong focus on excellent exam results and close links with Queen Mary’s College and BCoT.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you – our class of 2023

Mrs Jane Aplin Headteacher
