The Hutchins School
The Hutchins School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. It 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. The school has a strong sense of tradition that instils in students and staffs. The 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. The school mission is to provide a supportive and learning community that works together to build character of boys.
Hutchins can offer students 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. It provides learning spaces specifically designed for teaching boys, this includes providing resources and designing programs that meet the education developmental needs of boys. The Hutchins employs teachers who are passionate about teaching boys and who receive continuous professional development in best practice, innovative and creative learning for boys.
The School is situated in Sandy Bay, only 5 kilometres from the Hobart city centre. It offers outstanding facilities including modern classrooms, science and computer laboratories, three libraries, a performing arts centre, multiple sporting grounds, a chapel and the student residence.
