LJ Wild House - Student Hostel

Welcome to the page of L.J. Wild House, our student hostel, an extended family of students and staff who live together 24 hours a day and 40 weeks a year.

Our  hostel caters for both boys and girls. It is under the direct supervision of the Head of Boys and Head of Girls Boarding  and house supervisory staff. The medical needs of our students are catered for by our full-time matron.

All students are located on the main hostel campus. One wing, Matatahi, houses 50 girls with separate senior girls accommodation in South Wing, Mckinnon and the newly established Francis House. School House houses the Year 9 and 10 junior boys, accommodating 41 boarders. Rangitane House has been redeveloped to accommodate all Year 11 and senior boys with individual facilities for Year 12 and 13 students. Rangitane accommodates 51 boys.

Over recent years several new facilities have been added. These include a modern dining room, co-educational student lounge, hostel chapel, student prep rooms, computer facilities, a full-size hockey turf, a fitness centre and a medical clinic / sick bay. We also have full access to the school library and computer suites, and have recently set up a new modern library within the hostel for easy access by students. Hostel leavers are encouraged to donate a book to this cause.

These facilities, together with tennis courts, a full-size swimming pool and spacious playing fields, provide hostel students with a unique secondary school environment.

All hostel students are expected to comply with our behaviour guidelines as the success of the hostel depends on the co-operation and good will of all students, parents and staff.

We welcome any enquiries you may have.
