Eggleton House Facilities

On arrival you are greeted at the reception area by our friendly boarding staff who aim to make the girls 'home away from home' as comfortable as possible. It has a great feeling of a hotel-like atmosphere with the buzz of friendly faces as the girls go about their day.   

Our facilities include:

  • Accommodation for girls up to Year 10 is dormitory style on two levels, while Years 11 and 12 have single rooms.  Years 5-8 have a dormitory on the lower level and Years 9-10 share the upper level dormitory. Each girl in the dorms has her own space which includes a comfortable bed, desk and storage, a lockable wardrobe and air conditioning. The bathrooms are all close to the sleeping areas. The single rooms for Years 11-12 are designed to offer the students privacy and comfort. They include larger storage areas than the dorms and a lovely outlook onto the school grounds.   
  • Boarding FacilitiesThere are plenty of recreational areas scattered around the Boarding House, each with their own comfortable chairs, television sets, DVD players, refrigerators and tea and coffee making facilities.  Pianos are available for recreational use and practice. There is also access to a table tennis area, trampoline, the School’s Fitness Centre during the week, and the school pool and tennis courts are also available to the boarders outside of school hours and on weekends.
  • If you are unwell, we are fortunate to have the school’s Health Centre situated within Eggleton House.  The School Nurse is on site during weekdays from 8am – 4pm and on call after hours for the boarders when she can be phoned for advice or will come in to attend to an emergency.
  • Nutrition is very important to a growing body and each week a healthy menu is developed by staff in consultation with the boarders.  There is always plenty of fresh fruit and cold water available as well as a wide variety of food to suit all tastes.  Lunches are prepared for you to take to school or you can choose to have the hot food option instead.  Dinner is a fun time to talk about the day and relax with your extended family.  Our dining room is also used for recreational activities and is often the hub of the social life of all of the girls.

To visit the Boarding House please book a tour or take a virtual tour
