Walford offers a wide range of boarding options from Year 7 upwards. Although most boarding students enjoy full-time boarding, flexible boarding arrangements are available at Walford to cater for a range of student needs. Weekday boarding is available to students who may wish to stay in the boarding house from Monday to Friday but go back home for the weekends. This is the choice of many girls who live in closer proximity to the school or sometimes to assist parents who have demanding work schedules.
The girls in the senior years will have the opportunity to have their own bedrooms, laptops with access to all the school programs at night, and individual bathrooms.

The boarding house has a positive and productive atmosphere. Younger girls have supervised homework times whilst the older students work more independently. Boarding staff members communicate regularly with teaching staff to ensure that any academic concerns are quickly resolved and keep in close contact with parents. Many of our staff members are ex parents not only of Walford but also of its boarding house and others have been boarders themselves.
