International enrolments

International students are an important part of The Hutchins School community. Our community celebrates cultural diversity and enjoys global networking opportunities. The Hutchins School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys and our boarding house, Burbury House, is home to students from many countries around the world.

The Hutchins School provides a focused, supportive, safe and caring environment for all students. Our international students who reside on campus as boarding students are fully supervised and are provided with daily tutoring support and guidance under a specialised program.

Why Hutchins?

The Hutchins School has been a leading school for boys since 1846 and has an outstanding academic, sporting and performing arts reputation in Australia. The highest university entry scores for Tasmania are achieved by Hutchins students and the School is proudly recognised in the top 10% of schools in Australia. Hutchins is the oldest continually operating school for boys in Australia.

Hutchins offers a unique learning experience in an environment specifically designed for boys’ education. Boarding fees at Hutchins reflect the lower cost of living in Tasmania, providing affordability for students to live and study in one of the most beautiful locations in Australia. Hutchins provides many opportunities for boys to become their best, wherever their talents and passions may lie. Co-curricular activities include sports, performing arts (dance, drama and music), debating, chess and Outdoor Education.
