Student Life

At Northholm, we recognise that your child’s emotional and social wellbeing is just as important as receiving an academically rigorous education. Programs which focus on spiritual and personal growth is an essential extension to our academic teaching and instils in our students the determination and character to succeed. Our various initiatives gift students with many opportunities to enrich their life at Northholm.


Pastoral attentiveness is an important part of our educational philosophy and the School’s network of support, encouragement and guidance means that every child is cherished and cared for as an individual. Pastoral Care at Northholm includes the House System, Tutor Groups and Chapel and Counselling Services.


Anchored in values of respect, integrity and compassion, your child is encouraged to serve others, including their peers, the school and the greater community through Service Learning and Leadership programs.


Our range of co-curricular clubs, sports, creative and performing arts and outdoor education programs means that there is something for everyone. Your child will be able to discover their interest and talents, build physical health and participate in national and internationally recognised competitions and programs.
