Guildford WA

Message from the Principal

Guildford Grammar School is much more than a school. It is a community in which generations of Western Australians and Old Guildfordians feel a deep sense of belonging to, belonging that can last a lifetime.

Our proud heritage of over 125 years, guides our contemporary experience. When Mr Charles Harper opened his home in Woodbridge to the first 18 students in 1896, he knew nothing of the Guildford Grammar School that we see before us.

Surrounded by wide-open space, on the banks of the Swan River, the opportunities are endless. Our youngest students explore our grounds with curiosity during Bush School. Our rowers glide perfectly in sync along the winding river. Our musicians fill the air with beautiful melodies and laughter echoes around the campus wherever you go.

Everyday our boarders walk along Terrace Road to our world-class Boarding House, home to over 150 girls and boys, brothers and sisters, from regional Western Australia, interstate and overseas.

At Guildford Grammar School, students are inspired to live a life of purpose. We believe that they have agency in their own learning, and the ability to positively influence their own lives and the world around them, now and into the future.

They are empowered to find their own individual strengths and passions on their journey of discovery to personal excellence, through academic, sport and co-curricular pursuits.

Working with students and partnering with families, we focus on educating the whole child, and prepare graduates with the capacity to rise to life’s opportunities and challenges whilst pursuing pathways to personal success.

As we lead the way as an inclusive Pre-K to Year 12, co-educational, boarding and day school in Western Australia, we will continue to build a community that is defined by its values, celebrates its diversity and is loved by the students who are fortunate to walk our grounds.

I welcome you to explore our unrivalled surroundings and join our special community.
