Welcome to Boarding

A very warm welcome to Harlin House, Brisbane Grammar School's boarding community, set in the heart of our inner city campus.

Brisbane Grammar School has a proud boarding history and in line with the traditions and values that are at the heart of the school, we run modern, relevant and highly valued boarding programs that engage and support the boys in their BGS journey.

Our boarders come from diverse backgrounds, both locally (Brisbane) and afar; from towns and outback properties across provincial and rural Queensland and New South Wales, to the Northern Territory and Papua New Guinea. There are a healthy number of expat families, including the sons of many old boys, with boarders calling Canada, South Africa or America as home.

Harlin House is a seven day a week boarding house, with most boys staying in each weekend. They are kept busy and engaged through our carefully tailored programs which include everything from academic and activity programs to learning life skills and developing their leadership capabilities.

Our professional and caring house tutors ensure that the boarders are extremely well cared for at a variety of levels, from active nightly support in their studies, delivered by qualified teachers, to attentive supervision in house, and a diverse range of activities. Our in-house Health Centre provides 24/7 care throughout the term and ensures the wellbeing of each boy.

Above all else, we know the boys well and seek to build close and supportive relations with parents, and we very much look forward to welcoming you to the Harlin House community.

I encourage you to access the links to the specific offerings that are open to our boarders.

You are also most welcome to contact me or our Director of Enrolments, Mr Jamie Smith, for further information.
