The Boarding Family

The Edmund Webb Family is made up of Boarding staff, their families and the boys.

Home away from Home

At Edmund Webb, the Boarding Family becomes the boy’s city family.
  • Four academic staff members live in the Boarding House with their families.
  • The Master-on-Duty is the main point of contact when parents are wanting to speak to someone about their son
  • The boarders are a tight knit group of boys who offer support to each other. They are often found enjoying a game of Cricket or Rugby in the nearby Wyvern Preparatory sports grounds or trekking down to Enmore for a late afternoon gelato.
