Scots All Saints is a community like no other. At its heart is a sense of belonging. For boarders and day students alike, their College is a home away from home. A place where belonging turns into lifelong friendships, strong and connected young adults, and the will to make a difference.
Boarding is an integral part of the fabric of the Scots All Saints College community. With a longstanding boarding tradition, the College has a deep understanding of the unique responsibilities of supporting students and creating a family atmosphere, to develop successful men and women in an ever-changing world.
With the advantage of wide-open campuses, fresh air and unrivalled space to thrive, Scots All Saints College supports regional and rural boarding students with a safe, secure and continuous learning environment. Full-time, weekly and short-term boarding accommodation is available to girls and boys from Years 7 to 12, conveniently located on campus so your child can walk to class and participate in before and after school programs. The Senior Campus houses 3 boarding houses for Years 7 to 12.
Weekly and casual boarding
Weekly boarding is a new and exciting option for our Scots All Saints College community. Your child can board during the week and return home on Friday afternoon, at the conclusion of the school day. Boarders then return on Sunday afternoon. In addition to weekly boarding, casual boarding is an option to help your child achieve the most from their educational journey at school.
Boarding students (Years 7 to 12) enjoy a dedicated space to live and learn on campus, with excellent facilities and a safe, secure and comforting environment to call their home away from home. With over 150 acres of land, including a working farm for cattle and sheep and an equestrian centre, our campus is one of the largest in Australia.
Our modern, well-equipped facilities support an inspiring learning environment. The Senior Campus offers a 25-metre indoor swimming pool, Performing Arts Centre, Sports Centre and Pavilion, numerous sporting ovals, tennis courts, a newly refurbished library, newly equipped Agriculture Centre, Wellness Space and a dining hall with nutritious meals.
There are three boarding houses Galloway House (Years 7 and 10 Girls), Ives House (Years 11 to 12 Girls) and Thompson House (Years 7 to 12 Boys). All three boarding houses have had recent upgrades to offer modern, comfortable, private accommodation with study spaces, communal recreational areas and kitchens. Equestrian facilities and agistment allow boarders to bring their own horses to stay on campus during the term.
Experienced boarding team
