Ravenswood is a Uniting Church School for Girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 offering Boarding places from Years 7 to 12 in a Residential College.

Since 1935, Boarding has been an integral part of life at Ravenswood.  Our Boarding community is built upon the Guiding Principles of Excellence, Respect, Optimism, Courage and Compassion as well as trust, responsibility and accountability.  Within a secure, caring and happy environment, our Boarders are valued for their individual contribution and are encouraged to achieve their personal best.

Our students come from many cities, towns and countries, which collectively bring a rich diversity of cultural experiences and life skills into our home, where we provide a warm and welcoming 'home away from home' for our small community of Boarders.

Located across the road from the school’s campus, our girls really do have a sense of ‘going home’ similar to their day school cohort.  The two newly renovated Boarding houses provide a mix of single and twin share accommodation, linked by a magnificent glass walkway; a shared lounge facility, kitchenettes, commercial kitchen, dining and recreation areas, outdoor entertainment areas and supervised learning spaces.

We value the respect and trust placed in us by our Boarder parents, and we hope the Boarding experience provided by the Ravenswood Residential College community is empowering and memorable for our girls.
