Welcome to CrawfordSchools™

At CrawfordSchools™ we believe in education without fear, where good citizenship, leadership and sportsmanship are developed by placing emphasis on the needs of every child.

We would like to welcome you to the growing community of families that believe in the value of a Crawford education. Our graduates are well rounded, confident and apply the education and life skills with which they have been equipped.

Our Ethos

We treat our students with dignity and respect, encouraging individuality and promoting self-assurance, confidence and independence.

Our academic philosophy of “Think, Understand, Apply” is adopted within our nurturing environment and our small classes ensure a close interaction between the teacher and student.

The expertise, commitment, innovative ideas and methodologies of our staff encapsulate the dynamics of our education philosophy.

Our Code of Conduct, together with a demerit and warning system, ensures that our students are responsible for their actions and have a clear understanding of the consequences.
