Established in 1894, The Armidale School (TAS) is an Anglican, co-educational, GPS boarding and day school of around 640 students located on the picturesque New England Tablelands in northern NSW. TAS has more than 235 boarders from Years 6 to 12 – and with almost half of our senior school students being boarders, TAS has a long history of specialist, seven-days a week, residential care.

At TAS, we believe that education for our boys and girls is more than just academic achievement, but about giving them a broad range of opportunities so they become compassionate, courageous and committed young men and women.

TAS values and promotes individual academic performance and effort from Transition (pre-Kindergarten) to HSC level. TAS is an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the Primary Years Programme in Junior School. Middle School (Years 6-8) has its own academic and boarding precincts while in Senior School (9-12), students have one of the broadest subject offerings of any regional school in NSW and are supported in managing the expectations of achievement, responsibility and independence.

A hallmark of TAS is its rich leadership, service and adventure program. Activities such as cadets (TAS is one of the three oldest cadet units in Australia), surf lifesaving and Rural Fire Service are complemented by service trips and expeditions in Australia and overseas.

As a residential community, TAS seeks to combine the best qualities of home within an environment that is conducive to academic success. The Heads of House of our boys and girls boarding houses are all teachers, supported by a number of other staff. A high standard of wellbeing and pastoral care is central to the TAS ethos.

In addition to being one of nine members of the Athletic Association of Great Public Schools of NSW (and the only one outside Sydney), TAS is also a member of Round Square, a global organisation of more than 160 schools that share similar values, and service, exchange, and leadership opportunities.

TAS offers a range of Academic, Regional Boarding and All Rounder scholarships. For more information about enrolling at TAS, visit the website
