Trinity Grammar School in Kew operates a small Boarding House for students from rural Australia and overseas. The Boarding House is located in four houses adjacent to the School and accommodates 15 to 25 boys in a warm, friendly home environment. There is a great deal of structure and routine in the Boarding house but there is also the exibility and personal attention provided by a small Boarding House. Prep times for study, meal times during the week are very consistent and there are weekend trips, concerts, family weekends, boarders socials, however the main purpose of boarding at Trinity is to pursue academic study.
Trinity is an Anglican School for boys from ELC to Year 12. There are 1320 boys in the School with between 150 and 160 boys in Year 12. Most Year 12 boys continue with tertiary study. Over the last few years between 35% and 50% of boys have obtained an ATAR score of 90 or better. In 2012 eleven boys scored above 99. All boys at Trinity must play 2 sports and we have been very fortunate to win premierships in Rugby, Football, Cricket, Tennis, Volleyball, Hockey and Athletics (5 times) in the last 5 years. Music and Drama play a large role in boys’ lives at Trinity.
Trinity has 3 Outdoor Education sites and all boys from Year 7 to 10 participate in the outdoor program. At years 9 and 10 Trinity boys select the subjects from over 120 units on offer. In Year 11 and 12 we share many subjects with Ruyton Girls’ School to provide maximum subject exibility in the VCE years. Trinity is a notebook school with all boys from Year 5 having their own laptop.
The boarders are an integral part of the School. They usually start at Trinity in Years 9 to 11 but occasionally we have a Year 8 boarder. There are presently five Indigenous boarders.
They do not go back to the Boarding House for lunch but often they make their own lunch or purchase lunch from the canteen. Boys are responsible for some minor laundry but main meals, laundry and cleaning are the responsibility of the boarding staff. One of the bene ts of having teachers in residence is they can be available for tutoring in their subject. Up to 5 of the boarding places are reserved for Indigenous Scholars. We are delighted to continue the tradition of boarding at Trinity. For more information, please contact the Registrar Mrs Mandy Coxon at the School.
