A home away from home

There is no doubt that students and staff alike love boarding at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School. Students feel at home among our magnificent bush campus; a place where they develop lifelong friendships and become part of our special Boarding family. As one of only two co-educational boarding schools in the state, families cherish the opportunity to educate their sons and daughters at the same school.

Our central aim is to provide students with a home away from home experience that enables each boarding student to develop strong friendships, lifelong learning strategies and a degree of independence and co-operation that will serve them well in life beyond school.

Flexible Boarding options

Our School recognises that each family has a unique set of circumstances that influence their decision when selecting a School. We are pleased to offer a number of flexible boarding options, that can assist families to manage the competing demands of work, student commitments and travel requirements.

Short Term Boarding

The perfect option for families for who need to travel, or who would like their child to ‘test’ boarding. For more details on short term boarding please visit this page

FIFO Boarding

We have a number of students whose parents are part of the FIFO community, and they stay in Boarding while a parent is away. This ensures the student can easily continue their sport or other after school commitments, as well as have easy access to academic support through the staff who provide after school tutoring, as well as in nightly prep in Boarding. 

Stopovers and Sleepovers

With many of our students attending the School from outside the immediate Bunbury area, we offer students the opportunity to stay in our Boarding house for one or two nights; or just the afternoon. They can book the Boarding Bus to be transported to after School commitments and will be provided with a room and meals as part of the overnight stay. To book an afternoon or overnight stay, please visit this page
