Boarding at Cranbrook offers boys a strong, supportive home in an educational environment which epitomises creativity, exploration and a generosity of spirit.
With access to exceptional facilities and learning opportunities, boarding offers a whole education that empowers boys to recognise their own unique potential, and achieve their personal best in the pursuit of excellence.
Cranbrook has two Boarding Houses, Rawson and Street, which together care for approximately 75 students from Year 7 to Year 12. There is a mix of boys from Sydney, rural Australia, and overseas.
On our beautiful campus overlooking Sydney Harbour, boarders enjoy access to expansive sporting grounds, a fitness centre which includes a gymnasium, indoor and outdoor basketball courts and an indoor pool. Boys also have out of hours use of academic facilities such as the IT centre and library.
Our Boarding Housemasters live on site and have families of their own providing powerful pastoral support which instils a sense that boarders are very much an extension of the Housemasters’ family life.
Supported by our boarding academic team, the opportunities for learning beyond the classroom are extensive. Boarding provides endless opportunity to be fully immersed in school life, to interact with the whole of the Cranbrook community and make life-long friends from all corners of the globe.
Being a member of the Cranbrook Boarding community teaches boys to be independent, responsible for themselves and others, so they grow into mature and self-reliant young men leading adventurous and generous lives.
