As a parent, choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the greatest gifts you can give her. Since 1897 Tara Anglican School for Girls has been that choice. We provide an inspirational learning environment from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.
Tara is a school where the emphasis is on learning in a Christian framework with the aim of providing the best holistic education for young women.
Many parents and Old Girls identify a great strength of the school is educating the ‘whole’ student throughout her school life. I am proud to say that while our school enjoys a reputation for academic excellence as a comprehensive school, this success stems from a supportive and inclusive school culture. Our teaching practices are informed by research in best practice teaching and learning for girls from the early years of school through to our graduating Year 12 students. It’s a friendly, safe and energetic learning community where students explore a well-rounded education across a wide range of areas: academic, sporting, artistic and spiritual – creating confident, articulate and resilient young women who can thrive in an ever-changing, global world.
Alongside academic pursuits we take pride in helping our students to develop solid values, including affirmation, opportunity, service to others and integrity. Education within a framework of Christian faith has been the cornerstone of Tara since it was established in 1897 and our Christian faith values the girls as individuals and recognises their uniqueness. Tara’s depth and breadth of educational opportunities will continue to promote the attainment of each girl’s potential, through the academic and co-curricular programs and the development of girls’ characters and leadership potential.
As one of Australia’s leading independent schools, we have an outstanding reputation for preparing the young women of Tara for life beyond school and to take their place on the world stage. Tara students develop an appreciation of the world around them and we encourage students to be inquisitive, value diversity, have a sense of personal responsibility and a commitment to justice as well as to see learning as an ongoing adventure.
