Spacious, sunny and friendly, the boarding house is located at the heart of the school.
Our staff understand the support structures our boys need in their academic and personal lives, ensuring a safe, friendly and happy place to call home. Our boys know there is always a friendly face around for them to talk to about anything they have on their minds.
A Range of Options Available
We offer a range of options to families, with both full-time and 5-day boarding available. Casual options are also available for day boys, but places can’t be guaranteed and a minimal charge applies.
Our boys enjoy roomy communal living areas and cosy dorms to relax in. They can also access the school’s on-site facilities – the art room, computers, technology block, library, and our spectacular grounds where the timeless pleasure of exploring is encouraged.
Food and Feedback
Delicious meals are enjoyed in the school dining room, where meal times are sociable and good manners are taught and expected as part of the Hereworth way. Our dedicated team of catering staff produces healthy, nutritious food and menus are varied regularly, taking the boys’ feedback on board to tweak what’s on offer. It really is a home away from home.
During the week, it is a busy life at Hereworth; clear boundaries and high expectations abound. Good routines are established in the boarding house, and the boys quickly learn to be independent and self-managing: our boys have purpose.
After school, sport, and during weekends, our boys enjoy vital 'downtime' to relax and enjoy their own space. They can play sport, bike, and play in the school grounds, or read and play games in the common room.
Life at Hereworth is a bit of an adventure. Our boys have access to tennis courts, sports fields, cricket nets, a swimming pool, scooter ramps, a water slide, a slide and playing areas. Only boarders have access to Scout’s Gully – a favourite bushland spot to explore.
At Hereworth pastoral care is ingrained in everything we do. We consciously focus on ensuring our boys have the right levels of support for their academic and personal lives – in and out of school hours.
Our boarders are fully integrated with day boys in their daily school pursuits and at the end of a busy school day they return to the boarding house, which is a safe, friendly and happy place to all home.
Hereworth’s entire staff works collaboratively, meeting regularly to ensure that our energetic and highly motivating programmes are tailored to meet the boys’ needs.
For international students, we take pride in giving all of our boarding boys a home away from home by enabling regular contact with families back home and maintaining regular formal and informal contact with our boys and their families.
We carefully monitor the welfare of all our students, providing a firm but friendly environment where the boys feel safe, know where to seek help, and are constantly supported by all staff. We let them cherish their childhood.
The Boarding House Master heads a small team focused on ensuring our boys are supported in their academic and pastoral lives.
Our Matrons live onsite in the boarding house, so our boys know exactly who to go to. All Hereworth staff and resident tutors regularly spend time getting to know our boys and keep an eye on their progress. The Headmaster also has a house in the school grounds.
