It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to The Hutchins School, an Anglican day and boarding school for boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. Established in 1846, Hutchins has a long tradition of developing men of character with a firm focus on the wellbeing of boys. As a community, we aspire to be people of integrity who act with humility, kindness, courage and respect. Our highly skilled staff are committed to the holistic development of each student within a nurturing environment where students are challenged to be the best they can be.
“Nurturing character in boys is at the heart of what we do.”
