February 1866 is featured on our 1865 website this month - by the start of February 1866 there were more than a hundred boys overseen by four masters, including the Head. Find out more about school life during the early days of Cranleigh School by visiting our 1865 website!
By June 1866 the School – which by then numbered 130 boys and six masters – had settled into a routine. Rising every day in time for the first hour-long lesson at 7 am before breakfast at 8 am, long days of lessons were punctuated by twice-weekly exercise which consisted of runs for most and cricket for a few. There was also the option of using the small gymnasium in what is now the Chapel corridor, the equipment having been donated by the Headmaster.
