We have six boarding Houses at Cranbrook: Cornwallis, Crowden and Rammell for boys, and Blubery and Scott for girls. In addition, School Lodge provides a Year 9 settling-in House for all boys entering Cranbrook aged 13.
Each House has its own head of house, matron and roster of duty staff made up of teachers and graduate assistants. In addition, each student is assigned a personal tutor who will play a pivotal role in assessing academic progress, course choices, sports participation and social interaction. Our boarding houses have a much higher staff/student ratio to ensure a high level of care.
Additional mentoring comes from senior students who help newcomers adjust to the routine of boarding life. Medical assistance is always available from the school’s Medical Centre (run by a team of State Registered Nurses) and the school is visited regularly by its own doctor.
Boarders eat centrally for breakfast, lunch and supper but undertake prep and leisure activities in their individual Houses. Between 8:25 and 3.55pm they share the same school life as their day student counterparts.
