Crawford College Lonehill offers you a well-balanced education. We have an outstanding reputation...

of providing a world-class education and our matric results over the last ten years have been exceptional – but our commitment to excellence goes way beyond academics.

We have become very competitive in all sport and have a very strong cultural extra-mural programme. Music, Art, Drama, Debating and Public Speaking are our strengths and these provide wonderful opportunities for many students to develop their talents in these areas.

The focus at the College is on the individual. We encourage students to express themselves as individuals within the framework of the Code of Conduct. Leadership is developed by creating a climate where student opinion is valued and where students are encouraged to ask questions. The flexible multiform also allows for freedom of expression and the student involvement and participation in the College assemblies gives the students opportunities to grow in self-confidence.

The teachers appointed at the College are highly qualified, vibrant and passionate about their subjects. They are selected for their outstanding teaching ability, dedication and love of students. Positive, enthusiastic interaction with students is vital and students are encouraged to “Think, Understand and Apply”. The ambience in the classroom is one of warmth, excitement and mutual respect.

Why Crawford College Lonehill?

In line with all Crawford Schools we subscribe to a COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE. Our campus is friendly, our students are relaxed but disciplined, and our motivated and professional staff members are specialists in their fields.

We offer a balanced education, combining academics, high competitive sports teams and cultural activities such as art, debating, drama, music and public speaking.

What more could you ask for?

At Crawford Lonehill we have a very relaxed and cheerful atmosphere. Part of this atmosphere is created by our casual “multiform”.

The “multiform” is our day-to-day casual uniform. Students may wear black jeans or the regulation Bermuda-style shorts. Black shoes of personal choice can be worn with white or black socks. Girls may wear a black skirt of personal choice. The students must wear the regulation white T-shirt, golf shirt or long sleeve T-shirt with an embroidered College scroll. These shirts are only available from official suppliers (McCullagh & Bothwell). On cold days, students have the choice of wearing the Crawford bomber jacket, Drimac, v-neck jersey, cardigan or tracksuit top. The students may also wear a black belt of personal choice.

Our step-out uniform is worn on specified assemblies and school functions. The College blazer, smart black pants, a white-collar shirt, the College tie and formal black shoes should be worn by boys. Girls can wear the College blazer, a knee-length black skirt or tailored black pants, a white-collar shirt, the College tie and black shoes. We are immensely proud of this uniform.
