International Students

Located in the heart of Australia’s largest global city, The King's School's student population is reflective of Sydney's rich cultural diversity. The School's exceptional boarding facilities and educational reputation attracts strong interest from international students who make an important contribution to our boarding community.

Living in a new country is an adventure.  It can also be a long way from the support network of a student’s family. The renowned Pastoral Care program of The King’s School assist students to develop a sense of belonging and promotes their wellbeing.  For International students on a Sub Class 500 Visa, boarding is compulsory and a guardian who lives locally must be appointed. Guardians are introduced and interviewed by the Registrar at the time of student enrolment.
