Discover the Stannies Difference

Boarding at Stannies provides a great life experience and teaches independent learning in a safe and caring environment. All students can expect to be supported by enthusiastic, warm, and committed Boarding House staff, dedicated to honouring the gifts, talents, potential, and dignity of each student in our boarding community. Students from Year 7 to Year 12 are offered the option of full-time or weekly boarding. Weekly boarding includes four or five nights, with a flexible option and occasional boarding for students who need an overnight stay to accommodate co-curricular commitments or family circumstances. Juniors in Years 7 to 9 live in dormitories with single cubicle bed spaces, Seniors have single rooms. There are seminar rooms for collaborative learning, with teacher and boarding staff supervised evening study. Qualified medical support staff are onsite daily, with an in-house doctor’s clinic twice a week. Each dorm has a central common room with mini kitchen facilities complemented by a four-week rotating menu from the Stannies Kitchen. Our boarders are the heart of the College where they learn the importance of trust, good communication, and respect for others.

Study Support

The College has partnered with education provider, Studiosity, to expand access to our Boarders for after hours student learning support. Students can submit their draft assignments to a writing expert online, who will provide feedback on the work before students submit it for marking, or if they want more immediate help, students can chat online with one of the Studiosity advisers who will answer questions in real time. Most assignments are returned within 24 hours.
