Cranleigh School

Cranleigh is a specialist school for students aged between 4 and 12 years living north of Lake Burley Griffin. It has been established for over 40 years. Our students have significant intellectual disabilities and many of our students have autism as well. We have a total of 93 students.

Our focus for our students is to develop independence through individualised learning plans. We are strongly committed to providing all children with a voice through a range of communication approaches. We have a wide range of specialist programs and facilities to enhance the learning programs which are developed in partnership with the families.
