Cranbrook School: Celebrating 100 years

Cranbrook School’s vision is to be a world-class school that encourages and enables all of its students to explore, enjoy and fulfil their potential.  Its staff lead their students to discover and make the most of their talents, give of their best and thrive in and love the pursuit of excellence. 

To celebrate the School’s 100 years of history, this year it has introduced the Centenary Scholarship. This is available to students not currently enrolled at Cranbrook School and eligible for entry to Years 7-11 in 2018 or 2019.  Eligible students will be generous of spirit, and open to science and literature, sport and art, service and adventure, as well as a keenness to contribute to the strong community of the school.

This is a means-tested scholarship, and is set aside for families and students who would otherwise be unable to attend Cranbrook School.  Supporting financial details will be requested from the parents of short-listed applicants.  This Scholarship is only open to applicants who are Australian Citizens or permanent residents of Australia.  To learn more about this scholarship and to apply, please visit

Cranbrook energises the educational environment by offering a rich and distinctive schooling both within and beyond the curriculum and gives powerful pastoral support.  Cranbrook upholds the character of its Anglican foundation in order to promote the moral and spiritual development of each student and foster the principles of service.

Cranbrook builds resilience and confidence so that each student can face the challenges of the twenty-first century with personal confidence, intellectual versatility, academic hunger and optimism.  They inspire and support them to respect the integrity of differences, and lead adventurous, courageous and generous lives contributing to the betterment of society.

On the brink of its centenary year in 2018, Cranbrook is excited about all it is planning as a school; from curricular reform and the development of its rural campus in Wolgan Valley to plans for the renewal of the Senior School campus.  These plans underscore the determination to create a world-class, globally minded curriculum with a distinctively Australian character. The exciting plans will honour the distinctive heritage while enabling the school to flourish throughout its second century and to sustain its tradition of balancing respect for individuality with the building of a compassionate and generous community to honour the integrity of difference.

During the centenary year, Cranbrook will be celebrating its unique founding mission, powerful educational philosophy and its place at the heart of the local community.  From the beginning, the school was tasked with the realisation of a radical, expansive view of boys’ schooling which would avoid stereotyping young men and embrace the spirit of the great liberal tradition centred upon the values bestowed by their Anglican foundation.  This powerful mixture has brought into being a genuine commitment to creativity, diversity, individuality and a love of the pursuit of excellence.
