Originally opened for boys' boarding over 60 years ago, the accommodation was extensively upgraded in recent times to include a modern facility catering for a rapidly growing number of girls. This was further extended as the demand for girls’ boarding places grew. Our boarders can now boast on one of the best boarding facilities for boys and girls in New Zealand.
Full term boarding is available. The Duty Staff are caring, highly experienced teaching staff within the College who understand the special needs of students living and studying away from home.
Our boarders come from as far afield as Germany, the Solomon Islands and China. Some are from rural homes in New Zealand, and some simply live too far across Auckland for daily access by bus. Many choose to live at Bruce House to avoid daily commuting or to take advantage of before and after school co-curricular commitments.
They enter a very special, close knit community and become involved with many facets of College life; they tend to be active participants in the many sporting and cultural activities on offer.
