We are a multi-site organisation which includes our primary provision, based at College Road and secondary provision, based at Cranbury Road. We have Outreach teams for both Secondary and Primary that provide specialist support within schools and a Hospital Teaching Service based at Royal Berkshire Hospital who provide education to children on short and long term stays.  Cranbury College is a fast paced, energetic setting where we pride ourselves on a strong team ethic, always working together to create a nurturing and supportive setting for our student's alternative pathway to success.
