Since our foundation in 1896, Guildford Grammar School has established a proud tradition of boarding. We provide a home away from home for our students from regional Western Australia, interstate and overseas. Our boarding students enrich our school culture and establish lifelong friendships within our community.
The Boarding House is not just a place to live, it’s a place for students to grow. Our extensive pastoral care program ensures every child is known and cared for. My family and I have been involved with this wonderful school for many years and over this time we have developed lasting friendships.
Not only do we have world-class boarding facilities, we are fortunate to have an amazing team of caring and supportive staff, parents and friends. It is without a doubt, the people of this community who make Guildford Grammar School such a warm and positive place.
We are excited that our boarding opportunities continue to grow with new places available in Year 7 and 8 for 2024! Get in touch to learn more. We are also expanding our course offering with the introduction of the Automotive Cert II and ATAR Agribusiness, the first of its kind in WA.
I look forward to meeting your family and showing you around our natural and unrivalled surroundings. As one of Western Australia’s oldest schools, Guildford Grammar School proudly offers extraordinary opportunities and modern, comfortable living within a stimulating and welcoming environment that promotes wellbeing and prepares students for their future.

A unique shared experience
We offer a unique, shared opportunity for the whole family. Just like at home, co-educational boarding allows siblings to learn and live together at school and share the boarding journey, offering comfort for the whole family while also delivering flexibility and convenience for parents. Co-educational boarding encourages important social and emotional skills and provides a setting to develop healthy and respectful relationships with one another.
There are many benefits to co-educational boarding that have a lasting impact on a child’s learning journey. We understand the main consideration for families is to provide their children with greater opportunities. Learning and living together, boarders become part of our warm community, where belonging lasts a lifetime. Our boarders bring diversity, fresh perspectives and a cultural richness to the entire school community.
