Among Perth's Leading Boarding Schools - St Mary's

Boarding at St Mary’s

Moving away from home into a boarding school is a big step in the life of any girl. That is why our staff are there every step of the way to help your daughter thrive in our wonderful boarding community.

Our boarders live in Anne Symington House, which is located at the heart of our school. They experience life in a natural setting thanks to our idyllic campus, which is set on 16 hectares of green grounds in the beautiful surrounds of Karrinyup and Trigg Bushland Reserve. At the same time, students enjoy the wealth of opportunities that come with living close to a capital city.

Our Boarding House

Our boarders enjoy much more than an idyllic setting. You can rest assured knowing that your daughter will have every opportunity to discover her best in a modern, safe and supportive environment.

Settling In

We aim to provide a true sense of home for our boarding students, and each girl in our care is seen as an individual with her own personality, set of unique abilities and specific needs.

Boarding Support

Care and connection are at the heart of our boarding philosophy. We strive to support our girls in every aspect of their lives.

Our Staff

Our Perth boarding school staff are committed to ensuring that your daughter has an enjoyable and enriching time during her residence in Anne Symington House.
