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, give of their best and thrive in and love the pursuit of excellence.
As a school, we energise the educational environment by offering a rich and distinctive schooling both within and beyond the curriculum and give powerful pastoral support. We uphold the character of our 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. We inspire and support them to respect the integrity of differences, lead adventurous, courageous and generous lives contributing to the betterment of society.
Cranbrook is committed to academic excellence, lifting levels of attainment and enriching horizons. Our high-calibre teachers inspire young people with the joy of wholehearted engagement with intellectual challenges and develop a life-long love of learning. The close cooperation among the entire school community provides an educational climate conducive to each student working towards achieving his full potential. We offer a broad, rich and distinctive education both within and beyond the curriculum.
As a school we place great importance on the enduring value of the arts. Participation in these programs aims to develop skills in leadership, performance, creativity and decision-making. We engender a love of the arts in children from Pre-school through to Year 12 and firmly believe that creativity is a process which must be stimulated, encouraged and nurtured.
The Cranbrook School sports program is both deep and wide, and one of inclusiveness, opportunity, and competition. We encourage the balance between the team and the individual within each sport as well as place great importance on the ongoing cultivation of skills, training and conditioning.
We offer the International Baccalaureate’s MYP programme for Years 7 to 10. The Australian Curriculum and NSW syllabus requirements are fully-delivered within an MYP context. It builds on the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed by the IB Primary Years Programme currently being delivered by Cranbrook Pre-schools and Cranbrook Junior School.
The MYP comprises eight mandatory subject groups. In Years 7-8 students will study mandated courses in each of these subject groups, and in Years 9-10 students are able to adopt a more individual pattern of study with elective courses. In Years 11-12 we offer the NSW HSC as the leaving credential.
In addition, through our diverse co-curricular programme, Cranbrook stretches all students to give their best and learn life skills in a nurturing environment, where self-respect and respect for others is fostered.

At Cranbrook we offer Academic and Music Scholarships: these awards recognise talent, further potential and a positive and generous approach to school life.
We expect our scholars to set a healthy example to others through their conduct and their pursuit of excellence, whether that be in Music or a specific area of the curriculum.
To celebrate Cranbrook’s 100 years of history, this year we have 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. Students must be able to demonstrate sound values and celebrate the Cranbrook ethos. They 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 our 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.
