Cranbrook School is an Anglican independent day and boarding school for boys, Pre-school to Year 12 located in Bellevue Hill in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
At Cranbrook our vision is to be a world class school which encourages and enables all of our students to explore, enjoy and fulfil their potential. We lead our students to discover and make the most of their talents, to thrive in, and love the pursuit of, excellence. Each boy is acknowledged as an individual and given the opportunity to develop his personal strengths and talents. We have a co-curricular programme that is broad, holistic and distinctive, and our school sports programme is one of inclusiveness, opportunity, and competition. Whilst we believe in the qualities of school sports, the performing and creative arts form a valuable part of school life and the qualities of co-operation, as much as contest, are truly apparently within the school.
Cranbrook’s House System is one of the school’s greatest strengths designed to promote an environment in which students feel known, valued, and purposeful. The Houses form the structure through which the school provides individualised care, personal guidance and character development for each student.
Boarding at Cranbrook offers boys a strong supportive home in an educational environment epitomising creativity and exploration. On a beautiful campus overlooking Sydney Harbour, boarders enjoy access to expansive sporting grounds, gymnasiums, an indoor pool, and out of hours use of all the academic facilities. Supported by an outstanding boarding academic team, the opportunities for learning beyond the classroom are extensive.
Last year Cranbrook’s two Boarding Houses underwent a thorough refurbishment resulting in exceptional facilities that meet the demands of growing young men. The culture of our Boarding Houses is not developed simply by the physical space alone but how the space is utilised to integrate, to share, to live together as a family and form deep bonds. They are places where the boys can work, play, and make life-long friendships.
Cranbrook is committed to providing boys with an all-encompassing boarding experience teaching them to be independent, responsible for themselves and others, so they grow into self-confident young men. This year our two Head Boys are both boarders which is
