The Boarding Houses

Four Houses, One Family

By design, Toowoomba Anglican School applies a modern approach to traditional boarding. Located within a unique setting, our boarding houses enjoy outstanding views to the East with easy access to our Arts, Sporting and Academic facilities located within campus grounds.

The Boarding houses are split into age and gender appropriate groups, and the unofficial slogan of “four houses, one family” can be seen clearly in the many friendships and socialisation between our young boys, girls, men and women.

Our Boarding Staff place tremendous importance on the academic, pastoral and social wellbeing of the boarding students. Each house parent lives within their boarding house and sees the members of each house throughout the day. Our house parents have tertiary education qualifications and teach within the day school and also supervise homework periods. These homework periods are run for two hours each afternoon and at an increased frequency during more concentrated study periods.

Arnott & Founders House

As TAS is constantly evolving, Arnott and Founders houses have now combined. Arnott & Founders House is specifically designed for girls from Year 8 to 12 and features bright and friendly dormitories and comfortable large common rooms.

While the school week days are extremely full with academic, cultural and sporting activities, the weekends provide time to relax, socialise and simply have fun, enjoying one another’s company within the House.

Arnott & Founders House provides young ladies with the opportunity to thrive in their environment, whilst developing a strong sense of community, tolerance, mutual respect and independence.

Stoneleigh House

Stoneleigh House is the home for our older boys. The comfortable design of Stoneleigh House, set within quiet park-like surroundings, makes it private and an ideal setting in which boys can be raised to young manhood.

Each student has his own private space within a shared dorm and the communal areas are open-plan. The dorms are furnished with attractive fittings whilst the recreation rooms are uniquely spacious, which enable the boys to relax on evenings and weekends.

Bligh House

Bligh House caters for our younger boys and girls and reverberates with the energy and life of children building friendships and enjoying the camaraderie that comes from being together as boarders.

Being the first experience of boarding, great effort is made to ensure that their everyday boarding life is a really positive one. There is a high level of care over each aspect of the students' welfare. We pride ourselves on the level of pastoral care, nurturing and inculcation of everyday life skills.

Every boarder has their own area within each room and share stunning views of eastern Toowoomba that take in Picnic Point, Table Top and the Lockyer Valley. The girls reside on the top floor and the boys are on the middle level. Both floors can be separated at certain times of the day, but both boys and girls will have access to  the large, comfortable common areas. It is a true family environment, where boys and girls grow to treat each other like brother and sister.
