Our boarding houses are surrounded by lush landscaped gardens which offer a peaceful, safe and relaxing ‘home away from home’ for your daughter.

All boarding students can take advantage of Glennie’s first-class facilities and diverse variety of extra-curricular activities available during the week as well as on weekends.


Our boarding community is divided into three houses, each providing modern and comfortable accommodation designed to respond to the needs of the girls in residence.

  • Brown House – Year 5 to Year 8.
  • Dowson House – Year 9 to Year 11.
  • Simmons House – Year 12.

Each boarder in Years 5 to 11 has her own living environment; a cosy and modern roomette to ensure her privacy, as well as spacious common rooms, lounges and kitchens to encourage social interaction and the development of close relationships with her peers and our boarding staff.

Year 12 boarders enjoy their own semi-independent living spaces with their own well-equipped bedroom in a dedicated building complemented by shared lounge spaces, kitchenettes and bathrooms.


Your daughter will be encouraged to immerse herself in the rich and diverse array of extra-curricular opportunities on offer at Glennie.

Involvement in sport, music, arts, and citizenship activities are an enjoyable way for your daughter to make friends, develop important life skills and occupy her leisure time.

We additionally provide an excellent program of activities designed exclusively for our boarders.  Each day there are a number of activities available for the girls to choose from, including:

Community Service

Glennie boarders have the opportunity to undertake a range of community service activities, realising the importance of making a positive contribution to the world they live in.

Through these opportunities to work together with others of all ages and backgrounds, your daughter will expand her leadership and social skills and develop fundamental values such as compassion, respect, empathy, and tolerance.
