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 Geraldton Grammar School.

The numbers can fluctuate from year to year but we usually have between 15 - 20 students between Year 7-12 who are part of the boarding community.
Along with our traditional enrolment of boys and girls from the Midwest, we also have boarders from the Gascoyne and Pilbara regions and on occasion from Perth and the South West of Western Australia.

Support and Communication

Geraldton Grammar School has a dedicated staff member who is the liaison officer with Geraldton Residential College. Mr Simon Moffatt works both as Head of Secondary at the School as well as the support personnel for the boarders. From time to time Simon and other staff will join the boarders for dinner but Simon will also hold dedicated meetings at the school for the boarders.

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.
