Entry points to Cranbrook School are Pre-School, Kindergarten, Year 3, Year 7 and Year 11. Entry to other grades are dependent upon available vacancies.
Should you wish to proceed with an application the completed form should be returned to the School at your earliest convenience together with the non-refundable application fee and your child’s birth certificate.

Assessments and interviews for places may be held up to twelve months before the date of entry for Pre-school Kindergarten and Year 11 and up to two years and six months before the date of entry for Year 3 and Year 7. Please know, some applicants may miss out on assessments and interviews due to demand for places exceeding positions available. Offers for places are made shortly after the interviews. Once a position is accepted a non-refundable enrolment fee is required to secure the place.
Cranbrook School announced a new era in our School’s history with a move to coeducation in the Senior School. In 2026, girls will join the School in Year 7 and Year 11, giving them the opportunity to join Cranbrook’s innovative International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) and progress through to the IB Diploma Programme or the HSC. The two entry points of Year 7 and Year 11 in 2026, will establish a coeducational leadership culture in the School, and provide visible role models for our younger girls.
Complete and submit our Application for Admission form along with supporting documents. You will receive a letter confirming receipt of your application.
