The Hutchins School
The Hutchins School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. The School was established in 1846 in memory of The Venerable William Hutchins, first Archdeacon of Van Diemen’s Land, and is one of the oldest continually running schools in Australia. We have a strong sense of tradition that instils in our students and staff an appreciation for the history of the School and what it means to be a part of the Hutchins community.Their Vision is to provide an inspirational education where each boy strives to achieve his personal best and is willing to serve his community as an informed and active citizen, locally, nationally and globally. Our Mission is to provide a supportive and learning community that works together to build character of boys.
We believe Hutchins can offer your son a unique learning experience in an environment specifically designed for boys' education.There is extensive research into the way that boys and girls learn and it is now evident that boys and girls do learn differently for biological and educational reasons. Boys learn more easily through movement and visual experience and also mature at a different rate to girls. For more information about boys' learning please visit the International Boys' School Coalition. Choosing a boys school has many advantages. At Hutchins they provide learning spaces specifically designed for teaching boys, this includes providing resources and designing programs that meet the education developmental needs of boys. We employ teachers who are passionate about teaching boys and who receive continuous professional development in best practice, innovative and creative learning for boys. Tailored programs allow for the use of books and curricular materials that enthuse boys.
Established in 1846, Hutchins has a long tradition of developing men of character with a firm focus on the wellbeing of boys. They aim to build good men who act with kindness, integrity, compassion, humility and courage. Our highly skilled staff are committed to the holistic development of boys within a nurturing environment where boys are challenged to be the best they can be.
