Upper School
Student Life

Houses of Ridley

Student life is centred around Ridley’s nine Upper School boarding Houses.
For girls:
For boys:
Whether students board at Ridley or not, these residences are an Upper School student’s home base for the term, where belongings are kept, pictures are put up, and study time is observed. Recreational areas also exist where students can relax, visit, and socialize with their friends.

Each House has a Head of House living in a family home adjacent to the House as well as an Assistant Head of House. In addition, a full support team of advisors watches over the welfare, personal and academic progress of every student in the House and is the main point of contact for parents.
A unique feature of the Ridley boarding experience is the fact that all day students have study and storage space within the Houses and opportunities for overnight stays when necessary.
