Annual Giving

Provide a starting point for adventurous & courageous lives

The 2019 Cranbrook Annual Giving Campaign

"We need to continue to be a great school now and in the future. People look to new and we need to be there. These plans are true to our school; to our ideals, ethics and history. This renewal will ensure we remain at the cutting edge. We have to be at the forefront of education in Sydney in terms of not only our programmes, but our facilities as well."

 - David Thomas, Housemaster

Cranbrook is a distinctive School with a unique ethos.  We believe in equipping young people with confidence in their pursuit of excellence as we celebrate the creativity and diversity of human capacity.

Our plans for the future of this great School are motivated by a resolution to renew our core ethos and develop so that Cranbrook can flourish as it meets 21st century challenges and opportunities.

Our Annual Giving Appeal is an opportunity for the Cranbrook community to show their support for our School’s core belief. The programmes you support help shape the destiny of our students and influence their impact upon wider society.

We are renewing and rebuilding our School, and this Annual Giving Appeal is a very important part of that process. The plans for the future of Cranbrook are exhilarating and are based purely upon providing future generations of Cranbrookians with the best of chances as they head out into an increasingly adventurous, challenging and demanding world.

Any gift, however modest, will help us advance our plans enormously, and will set current and future Cranbrookians up for the challenges and chances to come.

A Message from the Headmaster

Annual Giving 2018

Realise Capital Campaign

With the Senior School Building refurbishment now completed, we turn our attention to the next stage of our Masterplan vision which is planned to include a transformational Centenary Building, a carpark under Hordern Oval and an Aquatic and Fitness Centre. Planning application is underway and pending approval we intend to commence construction in mid 2019. The Masterplan vision will be programmed in a manner that reflects the financial capabilities of the School, its operational requirements and the final costs of delivering the vision.

Building Fund

This fund will support the renewal of the Senior School Bellevue Hill campus and our future vision for our Wolgan Valley campus which will realise teaching spaces that inspire all who work and learn in them.

Voluntary Building Fund

For current parents, contributions to the Voluntary Building Fund can be made through your regular fee statements. Contributions to the Voluntary Building Fund are fully tax deductible. Donations to the fund currently support the School's Masterplan vision for the continual renewal of the Senior School campus.

At the Headmaster’s Discretion

Donations will be directed to the area most in need whether that is our programmes or facilities; all will have a direct impact on the opportunities we can offer our students.

Indigenous Scholarship

This scholarship will assist Indigenous students whilst ensuring our broader community have the opportunity to learn from, and develop friendships with Indigenous Australians.

“Cranbrook is a place where I can achieve, there are so many opportunities for me to learn and grow into the best person I can be.” - Harry, Year 10, Cranbrook Indigenous Scholarship

Martin Pitt Scholarship

The Martin Pitt Scholarship is designed to support recipients from a rural community and who shows potential as a leader, is a talented and passionate sportsman and displays a real desire to reach his full potential in all areas.

“I love the exposure and encouragement that the School provides to my life. It’s not uncommon that a boy will be doing rugby training on a Monday morning then be at an open studio working on his art Monday afternoon. I think it’s rare that you find that kind of diversity in a school and I love it.” - Will Andreas, Old Cranbrookian (2018), Martin Pitt Scholarship

Matt Street Scholarship

The criteria for the awarding of this scholarship is that the recipient, who is entering Year 11, clearly displays community awareness and a keenness for sport.  Without this financial assistance they would be unable to attend Cranbrook School as a day or boarding student.

“Being at Cranbrook has changed my life. The School is so friendly, everyone helps me out and there are great facilities.” - Lachlan, Year 12, Matt Street Scholarship
