Boarding at Guildford Grammar SchoolThe Boarding House

Guildford Grammar School's new state-of-the-art Boarding House has opened its doors to girls and boys during our 125th anniversary year! 

The world-class boarding precinct is located on the northern side of Terrace Road, providing stunning views across the Swan River flats, looking out over the 100-hectare campus to the river. The unrivalled facilities can accommodate up to 132 boarders with separate and secure living areas for girls and boys, and common areas and lounges for relaxation, study and group gatherings. The facility houses several residential staff and their families and also contains a dedicated space for boarding parents to be welcomed. The bright, comfortable and contemporary spaces are designed for modern day living and with our boarders’ needs at the forefront.

A home away from home

The Boarding House is not just a place for students to live during term time, it is a place for boarders to grow. Boarders have the opportunity to pursue personal excellence within a welcoming, family-oriented environment and to establish life-long friendships and values. Co-educational boarding supports students to develop important social and emotional skills and competencies, and offers a setting where students can develop healthy and respectful relationships with one another. 

There are many benefits to boarding that can have a lasting impact on a child's learning journey. Learning and living together, boarders are welcomed into our warm community, where belonging lasts a lifetime. With a long history of boarding at Guildford Grammar School, dating back to the 1800s when girls and boys resided in Woodbridge House, our boarders bring diversity, fresh perspectives and a cultural richness to the entire school community.
