Campus Life

Boarding at Trafalgar Castle School is available for girls in Grade 7-12. Trafalgar Castle Residence is a home away from home that provides a unique and personal experience because students and teachers interact in meaningful ways both in and out of the classroom. Learning is not limited to academics; learning takes place after class, in the Residence, in the Gym, and during play and leisure.

The Boarders at Trafalgar Castle School come from many different countries. There are also many Canadian boarders who reside in other parts of Ontario. This vast diversity in the boarding population creates an opportunity for all the students to learn other cultures and beliefs.

Student Life

The thread of sisterhood is woven tightly into the fabric of Trafalgar Castle and this is nurtured daily. Being in an all-girl environment allows students to just be themselves. But that’s just the beginning. At Trafalgar we do much more to support and encourage all students to achieve excellence in all aspects of the rich programming offered. Beyond the academic programme, there is an extensive co-curricular life for the girls. At Trafalgar, we offer a full life outside of the classroom, knowing that, for girls, taking risks and trying new things builds resilience and self-esteem—those key characteristics that will carry them through the toughest times. Whether it’s Athletics, the Arts, active Citizenship or Peer Mentoring, we have something to offer every girl at the Castle. One new dad reports, “Within weeks of coming to Trafalgar Castle my daughter started taking risks and joining teams she had never tried before”. That’s exactly what we want to encourage!

Arts & Athletics

Trafalgar Castle School's Athletic programme is an important aspect of every student’s co-curricular experience. Staffed by enthusiastic coaches, our programme provides individuals with an enormous variety of dynamic and exciting sport experiences.

We are proud to offer well-sourced and maintained facilities for our physical activity and athletic programme with a Fitness Centre and pool, two playing fields, three tennis courts and a softball diamond, all of which compliment the double gymnasium set in its own building on campus.

The school promotes healthy active living and to this end, offers many opportunities for the students to be engaged in physical activity. Physical Education classes, House intramural competitions, physical fitness clubs and competitive sport are all venues where the students are encouraged to participate.

For the competitive sports programme, Trafalgar Castle competes with the other Independent Schools in Ontario through their membership in the Conference of Independent School’s Athletic Association (CISAA). The students compete in different age groups, in a variety of sports over the three terms of the school year.
