Cannons Creek is a safe, community school with a Christian ethos, staffed by passionate professionals who endeavour to educate confident, trustworthy individuals who are encouraged to achieve their full potential. In 1997, a group of like-minded individuals got together with one common goal, to establish a school with small classes and to achieve the highest scholastic standards. Teachers were appointed who would rival their peers in the dynamic field of education. Through the staff's determination and hard work, supported by the parents and School trustees, the School has provided a platform for learners to be prepared for a combination of an excellent all-round education and life skills. Having celebrated Cannons Creek's 21st Anniversary in February 2018, the School is proud to have achieved these goals.


Your child's education is the most important decision on which his or her future success will be built. Therefore, at Cannons Creek Independent School we pursue the aims of helping our children to become responsible, well-adjusted, positive members of our society through an excellent education. Our motivated teachers are selected with care for their specialist knowledge and skills. The School is committed to providing a happy, stress-free learning environment with a homely nurturing atmosphere. We aim to offer a unique education opportunity of individual attention at an affordable and controlled fee.
