Residential life at TAS is based on the understanding that a boarding house is a home rather than just a residence, and a senior adult presence provides greater consistency of supervision.

Boarders have a vibrant and happy social life, especially on weekends, with activities driven by the interests and initiatives of students with the support of the Head of House and staff.

Residential life provides excellent academic support for boarders so that boarding becomes recognised as giving an academic advantage.

Weekend and evening tutoring, opening the library at times on weekends and access to The Hub after school is available for any boy or girl to take advantage of.

Boarding houses have comfortable and well-maintained facilities, with aesthetically pleasing study space for senior students and good access to other school facilities after school and on weekends.
