From the Principal
Craighead is an integrated Anglican day and boarding school with an established reputation for excellence. The school has a roll of 380, with quality education offered from Years 7 to 13. Set in just over three and a half hectares of majestic trees, wide lawns and beautiful gardens, Craighead provides a unique learning environment.
Ours is a school where every girl is valued and extended, and the notion of community is cherished.
The school is dynamic and appreciates diversity. Each student is encouraged to take responsibility for learning and to take appropriate risks in the learning process.
Staff assist students to become thoughtful and considerate people who are independent, resourceful and critically aware, yet assertive in a tactful and charming manner.
Small classes ensure that each girl is treated in an individual and supportive manner.
Our learning environment offers each girl the opportunity to fulfil her potential in a range of academic, cultural, personal and sporting programmes. We are justifiably proud of our students and their achievements
Parents are very supportive of the school and share our high expectations for their daughters.
We invite you to visit Craighead and see for yourself. Please contact the School Office and make an appointment to meet with me or to be shown round the school.
