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.

Come See Celebrate

Posted on 21 Oct 2020

Join us online on the 27 October for Cranleigh's annual Come See Celebrate.

This year we are unable to run our Come, See and Celebrate as we have done over the past two years. The event last year was huge, with over 450 visitors attending and it was such a positive experience to share with the community all that we do at Cranleigh. This year we would like to acknowledge the event and celebrate our achievements throughout the year… just in a different format! We are unable to have visitors onsite due to COVID restrictions so this year, we will be using our website, Facebook and parent emails to share and celebrate our achievements.

Mark the date in your diaries and be on the look out for further details.
