Crowden (Boys)

Crowden House was established in 1910 and is named after the Reverend Doctor Charles Crowden, Headmaster of Cranbrook School from 1866 to 1888

Rev. Crowden is credited with having built the main school building, commonly known as ‘Big School’ and School Lodge, as well as tripling the numbers of boarders at the school. Crowden House was originally housed on the School Lodge site but moved in the 1960s to the current, purpose-built accommodation.

Crowden house prides itself in providing a warm family environment; all year groups mix and are often found throwing a rugby ball outside on the lawn. Everyone is committed to ensuring the House is a happy and productive place. After all, Crowden is a home-from-home to its boarders for the majority of each calendar year.

Students of all years enjoy sitting in the common areas chatting or discussing topics varying from how to do their latest physics prep to topics such as, ‘how old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?’. There are 46 beds in Crowden and after their first year in the Year 10 dorm, all students have their own private room.

Head of House – Mr Nick Watts

Cranbrook 1st beat the OC’s in their last match of the season by 4 runs. What a brilliant game, clearly enjoyed by all. Good luck to the OC’s in your next few games. Well done and thank you to all our Year 13 Leavers, particularly Cam, Piers and The Laver lads. 🏏💪🏆
