Boarding | Walker House

The Friends’ School offers accommodation for students at our on-campus residence, Walker House, for local and international students from Years 7 to 12. We offer five-day and seven-day boarding.

Students are provided with individual rooms with separate study and recreational spaces available for their use.

We have separate boys and girls areas, with communal areas for meals and study. Students (aged 16 years and over) also have access to the School’s recreational facilities such as Friends Health & Fitness, which includes a heated swimming pool and fully equipped gymnasium.

At Walker House, our focus is on promoting a strong academic culture, celebrating difference and providing consistent pastoral care and structure via daily routines. We seek to provide a caring ‘home away from home’ with the feel of a large family. We strive for our students to learn how to live, work and play together, sharing experiences with people from many different countries and cultural backgrounds.

Caring for each other is an integral part of life in the Residence.

Please read through our Walker House Handbook for comprehensive information about our Boarding facility.
