The boarders at Prep have a strong sense of belonging and identity that reaches far beyond their schooling years. Tolerance, responsibility, duty and consideration for others are the corner stones of our value system.

Our children are welcome to board either weekly or full time from Grade 1 through to Grade 7.

St Andrew’s Prep Housemasters, matrons and stooges are concerned with the individuality, safety and happiness of each child.
Because we believe strongly in close-knit families, parents have full access to their children and can visit them regularly. Siblings may visit each other on the three campuses and birthdays are a big deal.

Every morning children in the San are visited by the school doctor. Appointments off the school grounds are organised by the Matron, who is their “mom away from home”.

Boys Boarding

Our Grade 1-3 boys have their own dormitory and common room close to the Matron, providing a safe, fun and caring space to grow and ease into the demands of school life.

Girls Boarding - DSG

Junior Prep girls are housed at our sister school, the Diocesan School for Girls, where they enjoy a beautiful and nurturing environment and the House Mother’s care.
