Who we are

Our boarding facility, Epsom House, is located on the school grounds and provides accommodation for 150 students from overseas and rural New Zealand.

We offer communal dining and recreational areas, private grounds and a computer room. All boarding students have their own rooms and their own email address so they can communicate with their families. 

The Principal has overall responsibility for Epsom House. She is assisted by the Deputy Principal, Epsom House and the Epsom House Boarding Director, who has responsibility for day-to-day management of the hostel as well as the care and well-being of students. 

Acceptance into Epsom House is automatic acceptance into Epsom Girls Grammar School. All Epsom House students in Years 9 - 13 are required to pay an annual development levy of $3,000. The development levy is due prior to enrolment for the following year.
