International students get offered the opportunity to live on site as part of the boarding hostel catering for 170 students or a home-stay with a New Plymouth home. The home-stay accommodation is in carefully selected homes. They provide full board including three meals per day, own bedroom with study facilities and will do students laundry.
Hatherley House is the school’s hostel. Our hostel is situated in the middle of the school and is separated into two houses: Moyes and Carrington. These houses offer 80 beds per house for Year 9 to Year 13 boys. A third house, Niger is where Year 12 students are accommodated in semi-single rooms. This gives the boys a more independent living arrangement and the opportunity for some leadership.
The boys are provided with quality 24-hour supervision with masters and a matron. We have a fully equipped commercial kitchen where the boys get three meals and supper each day. If the student is not engaged in an extra-curricular activity at school, the hostel provides one every day after school. The students have supervised prep each school night and on Sunday we offer many different mentoring and leadership opportunities for our students.
The hostel boys have full use of all of the school’s outstanding facilities: basketball courts, gymnasium, weights room, 25-meter outdoor swimming pool, and sports fields.
