form 4 cake and charity
Doesn’t everyone love a mufti day or a cake sale? They are all so fun but, while we do love wearing our own clothes and eating delicious snacks, we may be guilty of forgetting what the day is really for. On Friday the 7th of October, Form 4 hosted a cake sale for everyone to enjoy. The cakes were so successful that they ran out! Form 4 raised £ 657.32 For their charity Dreamflight.
The Great Litter pick! by Milly F2
Litter picking has recently become a popular lunchtime venture. After Max and Harry in Form 2 started the idea, many more pupils have decided to help make our school environment better. We are thankful to Mr Stroud who gave us the litter pickers and we are also thankful to Miss Phipps who gave us bags to put the litter in. We hope this will make our school environment better, both for the humans and the animals.
Anti- Bullying Ambassadors
Do you know anyone that has experienced bullying? Do you know how to spot bullying? Do you know how to stop bullying? A group of pupils feel so strongly about this that they want to try to prevent bullying at Cranleigh Prep.

form 4 hockey iaps triumph
On Monday the 10th of October, the under 11 As hockey team went to Charter House to compete in IAPS regionals. We went via the minibus and buzzed the whole way full of excitement and grateful for our big sub coats to keep us warm as it was quite chilly!
Form 1 Residential Trip to High Ashurst
On Monday 17th October, Form 1 pupils went on an exciting trip to High Ashurst in Dorking. We
boarded the comfortable Gastonia coach and whenwegot to Ryka’s car park, we climbed aboard
the minibuses and drove through the steep, windy roads.
As soon as we arrived, I felt eager to start the first activity, the challenge course which had seesaws,
ropes, wires and platforms. We worked really well together as a team and soon managed to balance
the Seesaw out; I felt happy. Soon after that we had a Kit Kat break, then we went back and did the
rope swing. We had to get from one platform to the other platform across a wire and the only
support we were allowed was a team member, a rope or a post! After that, we went to lunch in the
hall and had tuna or egg mayo, ham or cheese sandwiches and scrummy sausage rolls, crisps and
Next was the biggest challenge of all: the climbing wall! With help from our instructors, we were
fitted with tight harnesses and bright, orange helmets. Then we scaled the wall. One person was
harnessed whilst the others held the rope taut. When it was my turn, I had butterflies in my tummy
but I was really happy when I succeeded.
After climbing for a couple of hours, we collected our bags and went to our cabins. Mine was
‘Horizon’ and I found out that I was in Dorm number 5 with Avie, Evie and Lily! Each room had 2 sets
of bunk beds; I was on the top bunk and we had to work together to make our beds. Eventually we
went for supper where we ate scrummy fajitas and apple crumble with custard.

Following that, we returned to our cabins for a movie and popcorn; we watched Encanto and
enjoyed singing along to the songs – Mr Brooks even popped in for a visit! Then it was time to brush
our teeth and get into bed.
The next morning, we packed our bags, stripped our beds and then headed off to breakfast. What a
feast! There was so much to choose from: bacon, sausages, baked beans, egg, hash browns as well
as toast, cereal and fresh fruit – it was delicious!Our first activity was Woodland skills and we followed out instructors, Ellie, John and James to
collect Silver Birch twigs to use as fuel for the fire. On the way we saw toadstools, fungi and jellyear.
When we arrived at the hut in the wood, we practised making sparks using flint to start the fire.
Then we tried to set light to cotton wool. John made a campfire using the silver birch sticks which we
had collected. Then he roasted popcorn kernels in a gauze pan; the kernels didn’t do anything at first
but as the fire got hotter, the popcorn welled and popped – we could hear it! Soon it was time to eat
the popcorn – yummy! Next, John poured water onto the fire and used the embers to make charcoal
face paint! I had a Harry Potter scar.
Our final activity was orienteering in small groups where we had to read maps and find clues. My
group name was CLOG! Finally, we ate our lovely picnic outside in the sunshine, had a run around
and said goodbye to our instructors. Then we got on the minibus and drove back down the windy hill
to meet our coach and go back to school. I was tired but felt very proud of my achievements!
The Buzz team decided to open a competition asking pupils to send pictures of any mascots that support Cranleigh (it can be almost anything: a dog, a cat, a teddy etc) to us at the Buzz via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will feature the best and most creative photos in each issue!
The winner and inspiration for this competition for Edition 1 of the new look online Buzz is.....
