Welcome to Boarding

‚ÄčA very warm welcome to Harlin House, set in the heart of Brisbane Grammar School's inner-city campus.

BGS's proud boarding history began when the School opened in 1869. Today, our modern, relevant boarding program engages and supports boys in their BGS journey.

Our boarders come from diverse backgrounds, from regional towns and outback properties in Queensland and New South Wales, to the Northern Territory and Papua New Guinea. Expat families are also welcome, with recent boarders calling Canada, South Africa and the United States home.

Harlin House is a seven-day-a-week boarding house, and most boys stay in each weekend. Sporting, recreational and social activities keep them busy and involve them in the boarding community.

We cater to the whole boy: professional and caring House Tutors provide academic support, teach life skills and develop a boys' leadership abilities. Our in-house Health Centre offers 24/7 care throughout the term and ensures the wellbeing of each boy.

Above all, we know each boy well. We build close and supportive relationships with parents, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Harlin House community. I encourage you to access the links to the activities open to our boarders.

Please contact me or our Director of Enrolments Mr Jamie Smith for further information.
