Established in 1896, Guildford Grammar School is an independent co-educational Anglican day and boarding school, located in Guildford, Western Australia.  From 2020 we will offer co-educational boarding for boys and girls in Years 7-12.

We will soon start construction of a new state-of-the art co-educational boarding facility which will be completed by 2021.  A digital fly-through of the new facility can be viewed on our website.

The benefits of co-educational boarding at Guildford Grammar School:

  • Boarding at Guildford Grammar School provides a unique opportunity for children to learn to be caring, independent, resilient, thoughtful and respectful of others.
  • The chance for an outstanding education, rich in academic and co-curricular opportunities.
  • The ability to cultivate independence. Boarders learn very quickly how to develop independent living skills. But more than this, they learn how to be independent thinkers - a critical skill in the modern world.
  • Boarders have the opportunity to exercise leadership and collaborate together harmoniously.
  • They learn the importance of collaboration and responsibility. Boarders have the chance to develop courtesy, consideration and respect for others.
  • Boarders appreciate cultural diversity and benefit from living amongst young people from a range of different backgrounds.
  • Through shared experiences boarders have the opportunity to form friendships and connections that can last a lifetime.
  • A co-educational boarding house allows brothers and sisters to remain close, living under one roof as they would at home.  Having the support of a sibling whilst living in boarding can be extremely beneficial for young boys and girls.
  • Co-educational boarding provides an environment where girls and boys can develop healthy, respectful relationships with one another. Through these relationships, they can gain a wider perspective on everyday real world issues.
  • Developing social and emotional skills is just as important as acquiring academic skills.  Boarding in a co-educational context allows boarders to develop these important skills and recognise the differences and similarities between genders.
