Angelou Boarding

Welcome to Angelou House

Angelou House is home to 100 students from all around the world and various backgrounds. This has allowed a warm and welcoming community to form where the students can relax, study and socialise with friends.

To further encourage a sense of community, the students are invited to take part in various activities throughout the week from basketball to baking to pamper nights. The younger students also take part in sessions that assist them in learning life skills such as communication and problem solving.

The Angelou House team work tirelessly to ensure that every student can be the best that they can be. To assist in this each student is assigned a mentor and is invited to regular group meetings to encourage socialisation and individual meetings to tailor the support needed.
