Support and Care

An international full fee student can live with a parent living in Australia on a Guardian visa. If this is not possible, parents can nominate a genuine close, blood relative over the age of 25 living in Australia who is approved by Department of Home Affairs to care for the student.

A student who is not living with their parent/s is required to have an approved arrangement with Tintern Grammar in relation to matters including accommodation and caregiving support for the duration of their study at Tintern Grammar, regardless of age. The School will issue a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare form (CAAW) in this case.

In the absence of a parent or close family relative, all International Students are required to engage our approved agencies that will assist with Homestay and Student Support Services. The Principal or his delegate is responsible for the student’s accommodation, support and general welfare. This requirement is non-negotiable and the families must engage with these agencies and ensure that arrangements are in place prior to commencement.



Homestay accommodation is required for all international students who are unaccompanied by a parent or an approved close relative as per Tintern Grammar Terms and Conditions of enrolment.

Tintern Grammar will not consider homestay and caregiving arrangements for a student under the age of 14 (Year 9).

Homestay families are carefully selected and approved by the International Student Coordinator and are located within a short distance to the School or with access to convenient transport.

Many international students find their homestay experience rewarding and a valuable way to experience Australian culture and way of life and many remain in contact with their homestay families after they leave school.
