The King’s Boarding Adventure

Boarding is at the heart of The King’s School, and for nearly two centuries students have called King’s a home away from home. 

As one of the largest boarding schools in the country, The King’s School offers boarding from Years 3 to 12 across two residential campuses in North Parramatta and the Southern Highlands. 

“The King’s School is endowed with an extraordinary geographic footprint with 320 acres at North Parramatta and 169 acres in the Southern Highlands. The School’s world-class facilities enable the King’s adventure to be one of mind, body and soul,” says Headmaster Mr Tony George.

The learning landscape of each campus provides students with the challenge and adventure needed to shape their unique character. What makes a King’s education unique is that every student is encouraged to develop a healthy risk appetite, embrace challenge and adventure, and be actively engaged with the School community. 

Mr George says, “King’s is a place where adversity is faced and challenges are met, opportunities explored, and characters forged. It is a place where students live, learn and grow”. 

The King’s School is committed to providing students with a well-rounded education so they may graduate with a variety of skills and talents to make positive contributions for the good of society. 

The primary boarding experience offered by Tudor House sees co-educational boarding for students in Years 3 to 6, with a holistic education approach, offering the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP).  

For Senior School boarders, boys are exposed to several programs both in and away from the classroom to help develop well-rounded individuals. This includes cadets, outdoor education, sports, agriculture club and more, as well as a choice of curricular pathways from Year 11 with VET courses and HSC subjects both offered with the School currently undergoing the accreditation process to become an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme School from 2025. 

Students quickly adapt to life in a boarding house as friendships become forged. Spending time together outside of school hours playing sport, exploring the grounds or completing homework, they become entrenched in the boarding life. 

Pastoral care programs across both campuses help ensure that boarders feel part of an extended family when with their fellow boarders, with friendships made often lifelong.
