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 cornerstones of our value system.

Our children are welcome to board from Grade 1 through to Grade 7. Junior Prep boarders are housed at Fairlawn, while Grades 4-7 boarders are housed at Senior Prep.

St Andrew’s Prep Housemasters, Housemothers 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”.

Girls Boarding

Junior Prep girls are housed upstairs in our beautiful Fairlawn girls dorm, where they enjoy a beautiful and nurturing environment and the House Mother’s care.

Boys Boarding

Our Grade 1-3 boys have their own dormitory at our beautiful Fairlawn Campus, providing a safe, fun and caring space to grow and ease into the demands of school life. The Housemother is close at hand for the Junior Prep boarders. The playground and fields nearby provide a wonderful space to play, create and dream.
