Open Evening

Our next Open Evening is on Thursday 5th October at 6pm – 8.30pm. We welcome all prospective parents and students to join us.

This evening provides an opportunity for families to learn more about the school, speak to members of staff and help inform your decision about whether Glebelands is the best school for your child.

We would advise families to arrive from around 5.50pm and report to the main hall where you will be put on a guided tour around the school by some of our year 11 students.

The new Head of School, Mr Mitchell, will give a talk at 8pm. The school will also be running tours each morning from 2nd to 4th October and also from 9th to 13th October from 9.30am to 10..30am

These tours will give a true vision of what the school is like during a working day and will enhance your understanding of what Glebelands is all about.

To arrange a place on one of these tours, please contact reception on 01483 542 400

We are very keen to hear from any ex-students who would like to share with us their achievements since leaving Glebelands. Ms. Hansford is looking to create a ‘Glebelands Alumni’, starting with a display on past pupils’ successes, to inspire current students to think to their futures. It does not have to be traditional academic achievements but it would be nice to know how Old Glebeonians feel their time here helped shape them for their life ahead. Ideally, Ms. Hansford would like to have some ex-students come and speak to the class of 2017, to encourage and inspire them. However, if public speaking isn’t your thing, simply email in your reflections on your time here and details of what it has helped you to achieve for our display. A picture of yourself in your chosen career, training or receiving a qualification would also be valued. If you wish to contribute to our project (or you know of someone who might) please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We look forward to celebrating the success of our past students and hope your stories will really motivate our current cohort!

It has also come to our attention that a number of exciting school reunions are planned for this year! For the class of 1977 a 40 year reunion will be held in the Richard Onslow on 10th June between 12.30 and 3.30, all are welcome, any queries can be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The class of ’87 are also looking to celebrate with a reunion and charity event in September of this year, with some of the proceeds being kindly donated to the Glebeland’s Trust. However, Sally Hurman (nee- Blake) who is organising this exciting project, is having trouble tracking everyone from that year down!

Press Release – Glebelands School: GCSE Results 2017

Glebelands School had a fantastic morning as students celebrated their GCSE achievements. More students than ever achieved a strong pass (new grade 5) in English and Maths and there were some stunning individual performances with 11% of students achieving top grades across all subjects. These results will place Glebelands well above National in terms of GCSE performance.

Headteacher Anne Hutchinson said ‘We are thrilled with the outstanding success of our students and it is well deserved as they worked so hard. It is the fifth year in a row that the results have improved and this demonstrates that Glebelands continues to provide high quality education to the young people in Cranleigh and the wider area, and more importantly that our students feel challenged and supported to achieve their very best.’

She added ‘Staff have worked unbelievably hard as a team and their tremendous commitment has made the difference for so many of our students. We are both delighted and hugely proud of them. The Governors and I would like to thank students, staff and parents for a great year and wish our class of 2017 all the very best for the future.’

Glebelands School has received a letter from the Minister of State, MP Nick Gibb congratulating the school for its 'excellent improvement' in GCSE results between 2013 and 2015.  It is now one of the top 100 non-selective
state-funded schools for progress in England.
