Our Boarding House is not just a place to live, it’s a place for students to grow. Our new world-class, co-educational Boarding Precinct is situated within unrivalled, natural surroundings that offer a boarding experience for girls and boys like no other.
Since our foundation in 1896, Guildford Grammar School has established a proud tradition of boarding, providing a home away from home for our students from regional Western Australia, interstate and overseas.
The Boarding House — a class of its own
Our new world-class Boarding House, located on the northern side of Terrace Road, is at the heart of the school’s spectacular 100-hectare campus, surrounded by wide open spaces and stunning views across the banks of the Swan River.
The bright, comfortable and contemporary spaces are designed for modern day living and with our boarders’ needs at the forefront.
The facilities include separate and secure living areas for girls and boys, and both single sex and co-educational social lounges, as well as flexible meeting rooms, kitchen facilities, media lounges and study spaces for relaxation, study and group gatherings.
Family is at the heart of our boarding community. Our home away from home provides a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment that promotes a sense of belonging. Our dedicated boarding staff live on campus and boarders benefit from an extended family, a whole team of caring and experienced people who ensure that every child is known and valued.
Our boarding students enrich our school culture. Learning and living together, boarders can develop shared values and establish lifelong friendships.
Within this supportive environment, boarders can pursue personal excellence. Our extensive academic program and full and varied co-curricular program offer extraordinary opportunities that inspire students to go forward and define their own success.
A shared experience
We offer a unique, shared opportunity for the whole family. Just like at home, co-educational boarding provides a unique experience for siblings to learn and live together at school and share the boarding journey, offering comfort for the whole family while also affording flexibility and convenience for parents.
There are many benefits to co-educational boarding that have a lasting impact on a child’s learning journey. Co-educational boarding encourages important social and emotional skills and provides a setting to develop healthy and respectful relationships with one another.
Our spacious campus and ideal location offer plenty of space for our boarders to explore, be free and have fun! In addition to the school’s comprehensive co-curricular and sporting program, Guildford Grammar School boarders enjoy an extensive program that is aimed at providing a full and rich boarding experience. Recreational activity is critical to ensure our boarders enjoy a healthy balance of leisure and study time.
