Boarding life

Boarding is the heart of The King’s School, Tudor House. From Year 3, our boarders enjoy an unparalleled opportunity to live and learn on campus, develop their independence and resilience and form lifelong friendships.

Boarding is very much a home away from home where the wonderfully supportive and highly qualified staff strive to make it a welcoming and safe space, and a rewarding learning adventure.

Boys and girls are encouraged to develop their individual talents and interests, taking full advantage of facilities, inspiring surroundings and access to all the opportunities on offer.


The King’s School, Tudor House nestled on 169 acres in the Southern Highlands accommodates our youngest boarders from Years 3 to 6.

A unique and rewarding experience

During their time at Tudor House, boarders will participate in an extensive range of learning programs, experiences, sporting fixtures and excursions, developing their integrity, compassion, and a true sense of humility and place.

When the bell rings at the end of each school day, Boarders at Tudor House head out to catch yabbies in the creek, play sport or build BMX tracks. We encourage Boarders to be free-range children: active, fun-loving, curious and adventurous. You won’t find electronic devices in the Boarding House at Tudor House; that’s why sleep comes easily and quickly.

It is part of the Tudor House philosophy to develop strong individual study and learning habits. Supervised evening prep, in a supportive learning environment, is provided for all boarding students. Boarding staff work with each boarder to set learning goals as part of a child’s individual learning plan and support with homework.

Weekends are the highlight of a Boarder’s week. Each weekend a supervised boarding activity is organised. These activities vary from week to week and can include beach fishing, surfing, picnics, bushwalking, canoeing or just camping out around the fire somewhere on the School grounds. Many students also have sporting commitments on Saturday mornings and during the summer months the School pool is open so that boarders can take advantage of the sun and warmer weather.
