Message from the Head of Senior School - Term 1, Week 1 2017
02 Feb 17 by Jim Scott, Head of Sport
Our vision at Cranbrook is to create a world class school which encourages and enables all of our students to explore, enjoy and fulfil their potential. The question is, what does this actually look like in action right now? When you look around, do you see and experience this environment?
In 2017 we have rolled out a co-mission for the Senior School. This co-mission is our daily contract among each other, between students, staff, parents and our wider community. It is our rule, in the measurement sense that we can place against our daily habits, communications and relationships to test if we are aligned to the mission outlined above.
The co-mission of the Senior School is:
These statements form our daily contract with each other as we strive to achieve the mission of Cranbrook School. May I encourage you to keep your son honest to our co-mission as we seek to ensure everyone in the Senior School is aligned.
Please support and congratulate these boys as they strive for excellence in their chosen fields.

Main Teaching Block Refurbishment
Over the course of 2017 the Senior School teaching block will be refurbished level by level. Over the summer break the library has been relocated to Carter Hall temporarily. The previous library space on level 5 will now be converted to six new, inspiring teaching spaces that bring our vision for the whole Senior School building to life. The development also serves to support the decanting and refurbishment of lower levels, which we expect to comment in Term 2. Throughout the year I will update you regularly on the developments in the Senior School building. We have carefully selected contractors that can guarantee us minimum disruption to students and staff. As always, should you have any concerns please do get in touch.
