Moving away from home for education is a difficult and important decision and there is much to consider, so the choice of school is vital. You need to be confident the school will provide an environment that is warm, welcoming, safe, understanding and conducive to effective learning.
The Staff at Wilderness feel privileged when a family entrusts us with the dual responsibility of nurturing their daughter. We provide an environment where the girls are involved, challenged, well cared for and where they are given every opportunity to develop their independence and confidence.
Boarders have always been valued members of the Wilderness community. In the early days of the School, girls lived with the Brown family in their home. Today that family atmosphere is still apparent in the Boarding House. Located on the school's campus, girls living in the Boarding House say it is "the next best place to home".
Being a boarder at Wilderness adds another dimension to the school experience with friendships from the Boarding House often lasting a lifetime.
