Boarding facilities

More than just a room

Boarding at Haileybury Rendall School is a ‘home away from home’ – our Girls and Boys boarding houses and all our facilities are designed to be welcoming and comfortable and form an integral part of the School.

We offer a unique environment in Years 7 to 12 and our dedicated team of experienced, professional and supportive staff helps students feel safe and supported during their stay.

Dormitories

Our recently refurbished boarding houses offer modern facilities and well-equipped common areas for recreation and study. Air-conditioning helps make sleep and daily life in the Northern Australian climate very comfortable.

Communal areas

Communal spaces in each house include a reception, common rooms, games room, music room, computer rooms, kitchens and laundry facilities. These provide a home away from home where boarders can relax, feel comfortable and take pride in their surroundings.


Outdoor spaces

Outdoor spaces have been landscaped based on student feedback with socially interactive areas such as fire pits, basketball rings, ponds and gym equipment.

Boarders can also take advantage of their location to enjoy healthy and active recreation and leisure time with access to School facilities including the swimming pool, the art room and activities workshop.

Dining facilities

All boarding students share their morning, evening and weekend meals in the Boarders' Dining Hall.

These are provided by our caterers and are designed by nutritionists to meet the dietary needs of the students.
