WHY BOYS EDUCATION? Boys learn differently to girls. Single-sex schools improve performance. Tudor House is the ONLY boy specialist education on offer between Canberra and Sydney.

................................................................................. CHECK LIST: (Please circle the answer) • Have you returned his medical form? Yes No NB: Your son will not be able to start if Medical form is incomplete. • Does your son have any allergies? Yes No If yes, we need it in writing • Is your son on any medication? Yes No

The research is clear:

• Boys underachieve in literacy, which starts early in primary school.

• Single-sex education benefits young boys in social, behaviour, emotional and academic areas.

• Boys with boys means there is not the maturity divide - as is apparent when mixing girls with boys.

• Boys are movers and ‘doers’ - girls are sitters and ‘thinkers’.

• We model ‘maleness’ with our high ratio

of male teachers providing a broad, sensitive and balanced curriculum for “thinking” as well as “knowing”.
