Our inclusive home away from home

A place where our proud history meets the best of the future, Caulfield Grammar School is a boarding school dedicated to providing rural and international students with access to innovative learning programs since its foundation in 1881.

Our Caulfield campus offers boarding experience for Years 9—12 girls and boys, allowing siblings to board at the same school. Our boarding house is nestled in a school highly regarded for its thriving learning environment, where students consistently achieve strong academic results. We support students to develop a ‘mind for life’ and feel empowered, deeply engaged and encouraged to follow whatever path they choose.

Modern accommodation

Our boarding house provides room configurations designed to complement the demands of our learning program, with a variety of configurations ranging from single-bed to three-bed options. All Year 12 students are accommodated in single-bed rooms. Girls and boys share recreational and dining facilities and are accommodated in separate boarding houses.     

Outstanding facilities

Boarders have access to the school’s outstanding facilities, including the library, tennis courts, swimming pool, gymnasium, basketball courts and weights room. Located just nine kilometres from Melbourne’s city centre and well-serviced by public transport, students can enjoy convenient access to Melbourne’s many attractions.

Academic and co-curricular programs

Boarding students access one of Australia’s most innovative schools, with an emphasis on specialist teachers and coaches, and a broad range of learning experiences that prepare learners to anticipate their future directions with confidence, courage and capability.

Caulfield Grammar places great importance on boarders achieving their academic potential and fostering a strong sense of personal responsibility. Students can choose from an extensive range of learning programs, along with co-curricular activities such as music, theatre, visual arts, dance, sport, community service and various leadership programs. Teachers also offer after-hours tutoring and provide support with critical tasks such as VCE preparation and strategies. Boarders also take part in scheduled study periods each weekday.

Our welcoming community

Strong family engagement and involvement, including family and boarder orientation programs and an active Boarding Parents and Friends Group, are nurtured by our dedicated boarding team. Our community spirit is something we are very proud of.

Wellbeing at our core

Caulfield Grammar’s commitment to, and focus on, the connection between emotional health and learning outcomes is a vital component of our boarding approach, not just for students but also for families. The wellbeing of our boarding students is proactively supported through a network of care that encompasses a strong partnership between the home, school and community.

Having the right people around can make a huge difference to how boarders feel in moments when they need someone to talk to. Our boarding team offers guidance and support to ensure each child has everything they need in their day-to-day life.

Our students develop their own set of behaviours for each of our school values, which are: pursuing excellence, inspiring creativity, thriving together, embracing diversity and living wholeheartedly.
