Boarding

Boarders at Trinity Grammar School, Kew live in a close-knit community and are under the care of the Boarding House Master and his family, who are committed to providing a safe, supportive and nurturing home away from home.

Located next to our Senior School campus in Kew, the Trinity Boarding House is home to boys from regional Australia, Asia and further abroad. The diversity within the Boarding House adds to the richness of the boarding experience, and helps boys to learn to accept differences, and work collectively to grow and achieve academic and cocurricular goals.

Complementing the excellent opportunities offered by a Trinity education, our boarding program is designed to develop life skills such as confidence, resilience and personal organisation that stand students in excellent stead for their life after school. By the end of their time in the Boarding House they leave us as independent, self-determined and motivated young men with the capacity to share and the ability to accept and appreciate difference.

All students at Trinity Grammar School, Kew enjoy access to state-of-the-art facilities. The proximity of our Boarding House to the School means that our boarders are able to access the pool, sports hall and gym, music rehearsal and recording studios, as well as the Richard and Elizabeth Tudor Centre for Contemporary Learning, with its award-winning library and breakout study spaces.

On weekends and during school holidays, our boarders enjoy organising activities, trips to the city or the local shops, as well socialising with their friends from Trinity and surrounding schools. Outings are tailored to the interests of the boys and have previously included trips to surf beaches, markets, cinemas, snowfields, restaurants, cooking classes, sporting fixtures in Melbourne, live theatre and community service programs.

Our Boarding House staff expertly understand the challenges faced by adolescents living away from home. They are committed to providing the highest levels of care and support to each boarder, and to helping them develop the courage and confidence to master the challenges of further study, work and life.
