Beautiful Campus and
Innovative Learning Spaces 

A unique learning environment built for girls

Crofton House School’s beautiful 10-acre campus, located on Vancouver’s west side, offers modern, specialized learning facilities and a safe and happy environment for girls. But its natural beauty – the woods and paths, gardens, open spaces and large field for exploring, learning, playing and running – are what make this place truly special.

The unique experience of having all facilities from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 on a single spacious campus is unparalleled in the city, and it fosters community and relationships that span the School. Inside the walls of our carefully designed learning spaces, Crofton House is buzzing with activity, laughter, music and discussion. 

At the heart of our campus is Manrell Hall, a place where we gather as a community to commemorate special events, hold weekly assemblies and meet each day over a healthy school-provided lunch. 

All of this is right in the city – allowing regular class trips to Vancouver’s parks, beaches, mountains and cultural attractions. 
 

Fine Arts Centre

Our fine arts programs give girls the opportunities to develop themselves as creative thinkers and performers, and our campus provides the specialized spaces to support these programs. Used by both Junior and Senior School students, the Fine Arts Centre was completely renovated and reopened in 2017 to include:

  • A 330-seat theatre with state-of-the-art equipment and lighting, and a foyer/presentation area 
  • A 90-seat “black box” theatre for drama 
  • A makerspace design studios for girls to gather to create, invent and learn
  • A dance studio 
  • Four art studios
  • Music and band rooms, including a dedicated music room for Junior School students, and a recording studio

Athletics Facilities

Daily physical activity and the opportunity to join a team to play sports are integral parts of our whole-girl education approach. Our specialized facilities include:

  • Senior School Athletics Centre, including a well-equipped fitness centre, large gymnasium, physical education classroom and change rooms
  • Dedicated gymnasium for girls in Grade 1–7 attached to the Junior School 
  • Kent Field, a multi-sport, water-based turf that supports physical and health education classes, sports days and athletic competitions
