Living and learning
Learning in Residence is an innovative, student-centred program open for students in Years 9 to 12 from Australia and abroad. From the courses on offer to the architecture and location of the facility, everything has been designed to further enhance student learning.
Learning in Residence provides a safe environment in metropolitan Melbourne where learning and living are inextricably linked.
Learning in Residence is a welcoming, safe and nurturing environment, providing boarders with a home away from home.
Our holistic model of care is delivered by a dedicated team of mentors, academic supervisors and teachers, registered nurses, medical practitioners, counsellors, psychologists and allied health service professionals.
The Learning in Residence leadership team have strong pastoral care values, vast experience in boarding school environments and a commitment to the ongoing development and support of every boarder.
Learning in Residence differs from most traditional dormitory environments.
Wesley’s contemporary and beautifully designed facilities cater to a vibrant population of over 80 boarders, providing the optimal mix of privacy and communal space.
Wesley’s Learning in Residence (Boarding) Scholarship offers students the opportunity to live and learn within the contemporary boarding facilities at the Glen Waverley Campus.
Scholarships for Learning in Residence (Boarding) are available to new and current students entering Years 9, 10 or 11 who are Australian citizens who demonstrate excellence in both academic and cocurricular endeavours and who will contribute strongly to the boarding community.
History of boarding
Boarding is an enduring element of Wesley’s DNA. It began in 1866, when Wesley College opened its doors for the first time.
Our first student, Freddie Binks, was also our first boarder, and he was followed by many generations of boarders who forged lifelong friendships.
Although it is hard to send your children so far away from home, we were comforted by the knowledge that the staff at Wesley Boarding go beyond what we expected in their care of our children and that the facilities for sport and education were outstanding. We watched Antonio go into Wesley as a boy and return as a responsible, respectful and capable young man who is now at university. Our other son Christian is well on his way
