- Why Tara
- Christian Faith
Tara Anglican School for Girls is located on twelve hectares of beautiful grounds and gardens backing onto parkland. We are five minutes from the vibrant central business district of Parramatta, second largest CBD in New South Wales.
Our Junior School, Senior School and Eggleton House (Boarding) facilities are on the one campus, encouraging interaction across the School.
Tara’s campus and facilities deliver a breadth of academic, cocurricular, leadership and character building experiences in a Christian learning community.
Tara is a day (Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12) and boarding (Years 5 to 12) School for girls situated on spacious grounds at the end of Masons Drive (off Pennant Hills Road) in North Parramatta, 25 kilometres from the City of Sydney and five minutes from the vibrant central business district of Parramatta.
