Today the School has 205 boarders with enrolments remaining strong. A breakdown of the Shore boarding demographic shows that 60% of the School’s boarders reside in Rural/Regional NSW, 15% from overseas with the remaining 25% being weekly boarders.
There are four boarding houses at Shore. School House is the largest of the houses with 75 students ranging from Years 7-12. Of these 75 students, 30 of these are our new Year 7 students. The other three boarding Houses are Robson House, Barry House and Hodges House which all contain about 45 students each ranging from Years 8-12. One of the key strengths of having a vertical House structure at Shore is that all the boarders from their first day at Shore get to see and experience senior role models on a day to day basis. This is extremely important as they understand the expectations and responsibilities that come with boarding but they also get to see good behaviour and servant leadership modelled and lived out by the senior students.
School House was opened in 1889 when Shore began and has had boarders from the very beginning. Robson House was the second boarding house opened in 1926 and was named after the first Headmaster of the School, Ernest I. Robson who was Headmaster from 1889 until 1900. Barry House was opened in 1939 and was named after Bishop Barry who was the Bishop of Sydney and the Primate of Australia at the time of the foundation of the school. Hodges House was opened in 1939 and was named after the School’s second Headmaster Charles Hodges who was Headmaster from 1900 until 1910.
Strong friendship and fellowship as members of the boarding community.
