Boarding Experience

Home / Boarding / Boarding Experience
Boarding Experience is held annually, coinciding with our Open Day in May. Dates for 2025 to be announced soon.

This is an opportunity for new boarding students entering in 2026 to experience Cathedral boarding first hand.

The Boarding Experience provides a great insight into boarding life and a chance to meet our wonderful staff and friendly boarders. The Boarding Experience is scheduled to coincide with our annual School Open Day in May and students have the option to stay overnight.

Students will register on arrival at 9am on Saturday morning. They will meet current boarders and Cathedral staff, and be assigned a ‘boarding buddy. New boarders and their families will then attend our School Open Day through to midday before they check in to dorms and live as a boarder sharing meals together in the dining hall, participating in weekend social activities and sleeping overnight in the dorm.



Dates for the 2025 Boarding Experience to be announced soon.

Registrations are still open for our Year 10 Open Day, Monday 22 July.
