We understand that the decision to send your child to boarding school is a difficult one for everyone. That’s why, over the past 20 years, Geraldton Grammar School has developed a strong and close relationship with Geraldton Residential College, the boarding school option for students attending Grammar.

Our boarding community currently comprises of 26 boys and girls enrolled from years 7 to 12.
Along with our traditional enrolment of boys and girls from the MidWest, we also have boarders from the Pilbara, Perth, and from the South West of the state.

Support and Communication

Grammar has a dedicated staff member who is the Liaison Officer with Geraldton Residential College. Mrs Sharon Cole is currently the Geraldton Residential College Liaison Officer. Mrs Cole keeps in constant contact with boarders and once per fortnight she enjoys dinner with them to offer support and counsel as required. Generally another couple of staff members accompany Sharon to this dinner to enjoy the company of your children and ensure their academic and wellbeing needs are being met.

Academic Support

Boarders have fully supervised study times each week that they attend in the school library. The Residential College staff deliver and collect students to and from the school in order to meet this academic requirement.
