Boarding at Enwood House


Girls at Enwood House are encouraged to succeed. They become increasingly wise and independent young women 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. 


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

Short Term Stays

If you are travelling overseas and want somewhere safe for your daughter to stay and attend school, if someone in the family is unwell, or over exam time, we welcome Short Term Stays.
