Our Church

Our local church is St John The Baptist. St John's was largely built in the Thirteenth Century, including its tower, but there are parts that date back to the late Twelfth Century.

We use the church regulalry (when we are able to do so) and often hold our family and community celebrations and services there. We work closely with the Parochial Church Council for the good of all who are part of both the Cranford and wider communities.


Education and The Church of England

The Church of England has always been concerned with education in many forms and the history of Church schools began when the National Society for the Promotion of Education was founded in 1811.  It's vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart. In line with the Church of England's role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
