Welcome from Michele Marquet, Head of Junior School
An essential element of the Cranbrook approach is to truly know your child. We provide a positive and caring environment to inspire our students to thrive.
We foster outward perspectives at Cranbrook, preparing the next generation to engage with, and contribute to, the world around them. We want our students to learn to become inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, knowledgeable, principled, caring, open-minded, balanced and reflective.
At its heart, our School values the individual and the pursuit of excellence, which should and does look different for every child.
Cranbrook Junior School provides learning opportunities for each student that not only encourage self-confidence and intellectual development, but instil a sense of independence, responsibility and consideration of others.
