We provide a safe and caring environment for students, while nurturing and encouraging them to meet their full potential as young people.

Welcome

Students at Enwood House are encouraged to succeed. They become increasingly wise and independent young people with core values of respect, responsibility and integrity.

All students at Enwood House are accepted for their diversity of beliefs and opinions. They are encouraged to take responsibility for the care of themselves, others, the community and the environment.

Inherent in boarding house life is the value of long-lasting friendships formed with tolerance and compassion.
