Association for Boarders at Cranbrook:

ABC Committee

President – Gigi Bromage
Vice-Presidents – Marie-Claire Erith and Georgina Stephenson

The ABC Committee was created for parents, guardians and carers of boarding students at Cranbrook School.  Its main purpose is to provide a support network but also to allow better communication between boarders’ parents, guardians and carers and the School.

The Committee works closely with the CSPA in its aim to help improve the education, welfare and experience of all pupils attending the School.

We represent a cross-section of parents in Yrs 9-13 and across all boarding Houses. We meet with the Headmaster and the Director of Boarding twice termly.

We also have a general 'CS Boarding' WhatsApp group for all boarding parents, guardians and carers, to give them more immediate contact with each other and to discuss everyday issues.  

We hope that the ABC Committee will allow everyone, whether in the UK or abroad, to feel more connected to the Cranbrook School community and to engage in activities which support the boarding services provided by the School. 


Please contact Vice-President Georgina Stephenson here if you would like to join the WhatsApp group or to become a member of the ABC Committee.

Gigi Bromage

President

Originally from  Wilmington, Delaware, USA, I have lived in France - Paris & Bayeux, Normandy - for the past 30 years.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Lynchburg University in Virginia with a degree in International Business and French Literature and moved to Paris straight out of university to work for Disneyland Paris.

I am currently self employed in the travel and tourism industry and have been working throughout Europe for Insight Vacations since 1997.

I met my British husband, John, in Paris in 2002 and we moved to Bayeux in Normandy in 2004 where he set up his own tour company, France Custom Tours, with a focus on WW1, WW2, & wine tours around France.

We have two children Blaise (Yr13 Cornwallis ) & Scarlett (Yr12 Blubery).

I am very honoured to have been asked to serve on the board of the ABC and look forward to being of service to the students, parents, and staff of Cranbrook School. Please feel free to contact me anytime here

Marie-Claire Erith

Vice President

I have been a parent at Cranbrook since September 2015. My daughters are in Yrs9 & 12 and are boarders in Scott; their older sister was also in Scott for five years.
We set up the Committee in the spring of 2020 during the first lockdown to support the boarding provision at Cranbrook.

Georgina Stephenson

Vice President

We are ‘local’ boarding parents, living half an hour from Cranbrook, and have had children at the school since 2014.

Our elder daughter Lucy was in Blubery and left the school in 2019.

Florence is in Scott in Yr11.
