Boarding at Wesley College Glen Waverley - a boarding school with a difference

Learning in Residence at Wesley College

Wesley’s contemporary boarding facility, Learning in Residence, is purpose built for Senior School students in Years 9 to 12, who come from metropolitan Melbourne, rural Australia and international locations across Asia and Europe.

Learning in Residence builds on Wesley’s four fundamental principles of learning; learning to know, learning to do, learning to live with and learning to be, in the real-life context that living and learning in residence provides.

Boarding options

Learning in Residence offers boarding options to suit every family:

  • Full-time boarders are resident seven days and nights a week during term time – an option well-suited to international and regional families.
  • Weekly boarders arrive at 8.00am on Mondays and return home at 3.30pm on Fridays – an arrangement that suits many local Melbourne families.

What sets Learning in Residence at Wesley apart?

There are a number of unique features of our Learning in Residence program:

  • Full integration into the Senior School
    Learning in Residence is situated adjacent to the Glen Waverley Senior School campus with sport, music and drama facilities catering for all interests and needs.  The rich Learning in Residence evening and weekend curricula are available to all students – day and boarding.
  • Learning side by side in a culturally and linguistically diverse community
    Learning in Residence at Wesley fosters a true understanding of our shared humanity and a lived appreciation of the things that unite us. We prepare students to be global citizens with the knowledge, skills, attitude and mindset to participate actively in resolving global challenges and harnessing opportunities.

  • A dynamic, stimulating learning space
    Learning in Residence provides a supportive context where real-life learning occurs. Rigorous academic mentoring, outstanding pastoral care and unparalleled cocurricular opportunities develop the whole student – intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially  and spiritually.

  • Modern living in a safe and secure environment
    The contemporary design and build of Learning in Residence reflects the importance of social and cultural engagement. The modern, twin share student residences are located around a central courtyard with access to a 240-seat communal dining room for day and boarding students.  

A history of residential learning

Learning in Residence builds on Wesley’s rich history of residential experiences – a century of boarding, two decades of outdoor education, and the well renowned residential learning programs in Clunes, country Victoria, and Yiramalay, our Wesley Studio School in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.
