Old Kings School
Since we mentioned it in our post yesterday, thought we’d do a special post today.
An impressive Georgian building overlooking a sweeping curve of the Parramatta River, the former Kings School dates from the early days of the NSW colony. The site was first used as an experimental farm to grow exotic fruit trees. In 1834 it was handed to the Anglican Church to establish the Kings School, the first large public boarding school providing secondary education in Australia.
Over the years the school buildings were enlarged and remodelled and service buildings added. After the relocation of the King’s School in 1968 to Pennant Hills Road, the site was sold to the NSW Government and became the Marsden Rehabilitation Centre.
