History

Founded on August 3, 1846 by the Anglican Church in honour of the Venerable William Hutchins, the first Anglican Archdeacon of Van Diemen's Land, The Hutchins School is one of the oldest private schools in Australia. Its first location was Ingle Hall, a small building in the centre of Hobart, next to The Mercury building. The School soon expanded beyond the capacity of Ingle Hall, and a new premises was sought.

The school moved to the Macquarie Street location, affectionately known as the Old School. It was during the time spent on this campus that the school established the form that it currently has: The Prefect System and the House System began here. When in the 1950s, it was decided that the School again needed to move, it sought its present location in Sandy Bay. The last classes at the Macquarie Street campus concluded in April 1965, and full-time teaching began in Sandy Bay in 1965.

Since then, the school has grown exponentially, having gained some 600 students since 1980. The school has entered numerous partnerships with schools in countries ranging from India, Thailand, Canada and the USA. The school also has two sister schools in the Hobart area, which are Fahan School, and St Michael's Collegiate School, with whom the school shares its year 11 and 12 classes. Since 1926, the school has been governed by the "Christ College Act" [http://www.thelaw.tas.gov.au/tocview/index.w3p;cond=;doc_id=66%2B%2B1926%2BAT%40EN%2B20060522140000;histon=;prompt=;rec=;term=] , an act of the Tasmanian Government which ties the school to the Christ College and Launceston Church Grammar School.

The school is divided into four "mini schools". The ELC (Early Learning Centre) which begins with kindergarten, ending with year two. The Junior School, which encompasses years three to six. The Middle School, made up of years seven and eight and finally the Senior School, which includes years nine through twelve.
