Cranbrook is an Anglican independent day and boarding school for boys, from Pre-school to Year 12.
The school was established on 22 July 1918 in Bellevue Hill on the shores of Sydney Harbour. It was to be a school in the Anglican tradition whose mission would be to provide the best possible education for each boy entrusted to its care.
The Cranbrook School Archives was established in 1974 and has been staffed by a professional Archivist since 1987. Its mission is to ensure the preservation in perpetuity of those official and unofficial records and artefacts appraised to be of permanent value and significance to the continuing history, heritage and management of Cranbrook School. The Archives acts as the corporate memory of Cranbrook School and is an integral part of the School fabric.
These records and artefacts are made available for use on behalf of past, present and future generations and are used to support and enhance current decision-making. The School is committed to making accessible its history, heritage and culture to members of the School community and public.
The Archives includes the in-house records of the School of permanent value and the Heritage Collection of movable objects of cultural heritage significance to the School.
