Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) has redefined its boarding experience within a culture of continuous improvement to offer the very best opportunity for boys to reach their potential.
Situated on the largest inner-city school campus in Brisbane, Churchie’s boarding houses have been comprehensively refurbished and now feature enhanced privacy with full-size individual rooms for every boy, including larger rooms with king single beds for senior students.
Opportunities for socialising, group meetings and shared study have also been increased with a variety of well-appointed common spaces inspiring boys to connect, learn and grow. Each boarding house includes a kitchen, perfect for preparing a snack, enjoying some weekend cooking or celebrating a birthday.
The new boarding accommodation marks the latest in a series of upgrades to Churchie’s boarding precinct in recent years. A new purpose-built health centre and refurbished dining room and kitchen in the heritage-listed School House add to the world-class facilities that cater to the needs of every boy. And being situated on an expansive 22-hectare campus, boarders take full advantage of Churchie’s unique proximity to the city while having all academic and sporting facilities on their doorstep.
Boarding at Churchie – the care for boys
As Churchie boarders, all boys receive the highest level of care from a dedicated core team of specialist staff who live on campus with their families, including the director of boarding and a housemaster, assistant housemaster, housemother and resident master for each house. They are further supported by a network of teachers, nurses, catering staff, and academic and counselling staff across the school who are united in their commitment to the best care for Churchie’s boarders.
Churchie is also dedicated to providing the best academic pathway that suits the needs of each individual student. It is well known that boys achieve academic success when they are given the opportunity to experience a challenging programme that empowers them to take responsibility for their learning. As an IB World School, Churchie’s senior students can choose between two academically rigorous and expertly delivered pathways: the Queensland Certificate of Education and the IB Diploma Program. There is also an option for some students to access a Vocational Education and Training pathway.
In recent years, Churchie boarders have been well represented across academic, cultural and sporting domains. All boys, no matter their goals, will find a place to grow at the school.
