The Hutchins School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 all on one campus.

The IDEALS in our school

The IDEALS are embedded in all we do at Hutchins. Our holistic education has a focus on nurturing character of young men who know how to serve their global community and are challenged to be the best they can be in a peaceful, just and sustainable world. Guided by the value of IDEALS, Hutchins boys actively participate in international tours, global learning activities, service learning, and sustainability programs. We take pride in the extensive range of challenge-based programs available to all ages and stages, including a tailor-made Power of 9 program, a School of Performing Arts, an innovative career readiness program, and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Being part of an active global network of high calibre schools to strengthen our commitment to nurturing character and promoting global citizenship amongst our young men who will ‘live locally, act globally’. Embedding the Discovery Framework in all we do and connecting with other Round Square schools around the globe for meaningful collaborative learning and exchanges.
