Established since 1927, Huntingtower is a day and boarding school. From its inception, its values have emphasised that every child is an expression of God. Our students, teachers and members of the support staff care for, respect and look out for one another. Within the school community everyone has an important role to play ‘to work together for good’. While Huntingtower is a school based on the teachings of Christian Science, all faiths are welcomed and respected.
Huntingtower cherishes its friendly village community feel. Its small size of 700
students from Pre Prep to Year 12 ensures there is a tremendous scope for a
wide range of individual differences and talents. Every student is known,
nurtured and loved. You are most welcome to come and see Huntingtower for
yourself. Check our website for details of school tours.

Volunteer work for organisations such as the Red Cross and the Oaktree Foundation are important aspects of our school's community outreach. Our own international projects, aimed at helping disadvantaged children and schools around the world, have been the focus of many of our students' efforts. School visits to South Africa have enabled our students to experience first hand the effects that hard work, dedication and enthusiasm have in improving the lives of others less fortunate than themselves.
