an adventure in waiting
Boarding at Tudor House
Co-Ed: Years 3 to 6
Boarding at Tudor House is very much a home away from home where the wonderfully supportive and highly qualified staff strive to make Tudor a welcoming, safe place and a rewarding learning adventure.
At the end of the school day, boarders can be found on the mountain bike track, climbing ropes, picking veggies from the garden or exploring the beehives- all experiences that are uniquely Tudor.
The advantage of primary boarding is it provides children with the opportunity to earn their boarding wings before transitioning to high school.
At Tudor, the boys and girls board in one house with seperate boys and girls dorms and one common area.
For over 125 years, students from all walks of life and many corners of the world have happily called Tudor House their home. We warmly welcome boys and girls from the country, city, the local area and overseas.

Settling into Tudor
The individual talents and potential of each student are recognised and fostered. All members of Medley House contribute to building a strong sense of community, and the children are nurtured to be independent, responsible and confident.
The boarding house has a no-screens policy, which encourages outdoor and creative play, and nurtures a positive, social environment. Boys and girls are encouraged to participate actively in the academic, social, spiritual, cultural and recreational aspects of the boarding community.
Caring for one another is an integral part of life at Tudor House, and all boarders are taught coping strategies and are encouraged to share their feelings with staff and friends. Boarders make contact with their loved ones throughout the week, including writing weekly letters to their families.

Weekends at Tudor
On Monday mornings, Tudor House boarders love to share stories with classmates about their weekend adventures.
For boarders who are not on weekend leave, there is often a boarder excursion planned for Sunday. This could be anything from bushwalking in the Blue Mountains, fishing or surfing on the South Coast, horse-riding in Kangaroo Valley or trips to Sydney.
If boarders are staying on campus for the weekend, Sunday activities operate on the grounds at Tudor House. These activities may include orienteering, “Tough Mudder” style competitions, archery, canoeing, bushcraft, and simply hanging out with mates.
