A seven year lease at $1 per year from Inverlochy Trust set up by Sir Arthur Williams was signed in 1984. The house was designed by Alexander Turnbull and had been divided into 9 flats. It needed major renovations, repairs and repiling all to be financed by the Academy. By 1984 a management committee was set up and caretakers moved in. Later, Wendy Thompson was employed to manage the school. Her office was set up in the NZAFA office. By 1992, when more classes were running, she was able to set up offive at Inverlochy House itself.
