Welcome to Cranbrook! We on the staff are very proud of our school and all the boys in it. Although I have been Headmaster since the commencement of 2001, I continue to gain enormous pleasure from watching the boys develop as they embrace the opportunities that Cranbrook offers. I am enjoying getting to know the boys, and their parents and am impressed with their overwhelming enthusiasm for the school. I hope you will enjoy browsing around our website and will gain some insights into what constitutes Cranbrook. Please visit us if you wish. We would be pleased to show you around.
