Boarding holds a special place in our community; a proud Kambala tradition.

Overlooking the iconic Sydney harbour, Kambala’s boarding homes provide a nurturing, safe and supportive boarding experience for less than 100 girls. What makes boarding so special here is the happy, positive environment where girls support each other, and the close-knit friendships that are forged.

Set in the heart of our campus is the beautiful heritage listed Tivoli, the gracious home of the original Tivoli estate. Tivoli combines modern dormitory-style living with a sense of old-world charm and is home to our Years 7 to 9 boarders. Years 10, 11 and 12 boarders enjoy greater privacy, independence and social privileges at the purpose-built Fernbank residence where they will also develop the skills necessary for life after school.

The School acknowledges that boarders spend a significant amount of time away from family and strives to work collaboratively with parents and carers to create the ideal ‘home away from home’. Students are supported by a pastoral care team which includes boarding staff, academic tutors, medical professionals and counsellors. The team is overseen by the Director of Boarding. In addition, every new boarder is paired with a buddy to help them settle in.

Our boarding community is made up of young women from across NSW, Australia and overseas – bringing diversity and enhancing our girls’ awareness of being part of a global community. The blend of cultures, personalities, interests and backgrounds makes Kambala’s boarding community of young women a truly dynamic one.

Kambala welcomes international students from around the globe. As well as international boarders, we enrol the daughters of overseas visitors who hold appropriate business or temporary visas issued by the Department of Home Affairs.

Kambala is a CRICOS registered provider (02284M) for a limited number of Full Fee Paying Overseas students.

A Full Fee Paying Overseas student requires a Student Visa to attend school in Australia. This does not include Australian or New Zealand citizens, those carrying permanent or temporary resident visas or refugees.

Evidence of English language proficiency will be required and applicants will be asked to sit for the Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) testing, either in their own country or Australia.
