Since its foundation in 1881, Caulfield Grammar School has been a boarding school committed to providing students from rural and overseas areas with access to its innovative learning programs.
Caulfield Grammar School offers a boarding experience for Years 9 to 12 girls and boys, allowing siblings to board at the same school. We are conveniently located the closest to Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD) of all Associated Public School (APS) boarding options.
Our boarding house has a country heart, nestled in a school that is highly regarded for offering a thriving learning environment. We support students to develop a mind for life - feel empowered and deeply engaged and encouraged to follow whatever path they choose.
The boarding house provides outstanding accommodation and facilities for students. Rooms are designed to complement the demands of the learning program with a variety of configurations from single-bed to four-bed options. All Year 12 students are accommodated in single-bed rooms. Girls and boys share recreational and dining facilities, but are accommodated in separate boarding houses.
When the structured school day ends, boarders can access the school’s extensive facilities including the library, tennis courts, swimming pool, gymnasium, basketball courts and games room.
Located just eight kilometres from Melbourne’s city centre and well serviced by public transport, students enjoy convenient access to all the attractions of Australia’s ‘most liveable city’.
Academic and Co-Curricular Programs
In order for students to chart their own course in life, they must develop character, creativity, compassion and connection. These competencies are nurtured in a number of ways at Caulfield Grammar School – in the way we teach, the breadth of co-curricular offerings, and our commitment to every learner’s wellbeing.
Boarding students gain access to one of Australia’s most innovative schools, with an emphasis on specialist teachers and coaches, and a broad range of learning programs that prepare learners to anticipate their future directions with confidence, courage and capability.
Few schools can match the range of learning experiences on offer at Caulfield Grammar School. This enables students to discover their talents and hone their skills in their chosen fields.
Caulfield Grammar School places great importance on students achieving their academic potential and in fostering a strong sense of personal responsibility. Students can choose from an extensive list of learning programs taught by specialist teachers, along with co- curricular activities such as Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, Dance, Sport, community service and various leadership programs. Teachers also offer after-hours tutoring for students in the boarding house. Boarding supervisors, the majority of whom are members of the teaching staff, provide excellent support with study, supervision and role modelling for boarders. Boarding house staff offer careful guidance in student social activities, meals and study routines.
Our pastoral care program is designed to meet the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs of students. It is a key element of our student-centred approach to education.
With a carefully selected team of boarding house staff, led by the Head of Boarding and Assistant Head of Boarding, our boarding students can be confident that there will always be someone nearby who understands and can respond to their needs.
Boarding students are a highly valued and integral part of Caulfield Grammar School. As a testament to the high level of support and care they receive, students consistently achieve strong VCE results. Their involvement in a wide range of school activities is rewarding for them and recognised as a valuable contribution to the life of the School.
