Named after the first Cranleigh Headmaster and situated in historic buildings located directly opposite the Gothic Chapel, the Merriman Music School underwent a full renovation in 2000.

At its heart is the Clive Stevens Recital Hall with tiered seating for 100, a Steinway model B grand Piano and a fully computerised lighting, sound and projection system. Add to this a professionally equipped recording studio, a fully insulated Rock Room in which bands can rehearse, and extensive facilities and rooms for instrumental teaching and practice, and it is fair to say that Cranleigh music facilities rank among the finest for any school in the Country.
