The Glennie School is owned by The Corporation of The Synod of The Diocese of Brisbane with the operation of the School vested in the School Council. The Glennie School is registered with CRICOS (00496D) to enrol full fee paying overseas students from Year 7 to Year 12 into our boarding school.
We know there is a lot to learn and manage when growing as a young woman. That is why, at Glennie, we take seriously our responsibility of creating a comfortable, nurturing and private second home for our International boarders, where they feel capable to immerse themselves in all there is on offer inside and outside of school life. The Glennie boarding community is lively, inclusive and cohesive; fostering strong and supportive relationships with each girl and her family. Whether your daughter is an extrovert or a little more reserved, she will be welcomed into the Glennie family and embraced for who she is.
International boarding students are accommodated in our boarding houses. It is a requirement of The Glennie School that international day students stay with a 'nominated guardian' approved by the Department of Home Affairs. Homestay is only offered during school holidays for international boarding students.
