Cranbrook School
Our Anglican Foundation

Our Anglican Foundation

Our Anglican traditions also inspire us as we foster the principles of service, helping our students to use their advantages in the pursuit of the greater good.

As an Anglican School, Cranbrook has a strong foundation upon which to build a flourishing community.

This is because the Christian faith has so much to say about what it means to be fully human, fully alive and fully present in this beautiful yet broken world. As John Calvin famously reflected in his introduction to Institutes of Christian Religion; ‘It is certain that a man never achieves a clear knowledge of himself unless he has first looked upon God’s face and then descends from contemplating him to scrutinise himself.’

Education involves the entire person, mind, body and spirit, and in keeping with our goal to seek excellence in education our Chaplaincy programme gives our students space for reflection and invites the exploration of spiritual vocabularies, worlds and thoughts. All students attend regular Chapel services and sit Religious Studies classes. There is also a voluntary group for those who seek to be encouraged in or further explore the Christian faith.
