Tara - An IB World School

Unlocking excellence through
an IB education

At Tara Anglican School for Girls, we pride ourselves on providing a world class education that prepares our students for future success, global citizenship, and lifelong learning.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in Junior School and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Senior School for Years 7-10.

With the NSW curriculum at our core, we leverage the power of the IB framework to deliver an exceptional educational experience culminating in the completion of the HSC in Years 11-12.

International Baccalaureate

What is the International Baccalaureate?

The International Baccalaureate is an internationally recognised educational framework that challenges students to think critically, inquire deeply, and embrace a holistic approach to learning. With its emphasis on intellectual rigor, cultural understanding, and personal growth, the IB programme prepares students for success in higher education and beyond.

What are the benefits of
an IB education?

The IB programme offers a balanced and comprehensive curriculum that encourages students to explore a wide range of subjects, including languages, sciences, humanities, and the arts. This interdisciplinary approach fosters well-rounded individuals who can make connections across disciplines and think critically about complex issues.

The IB program fosters the all-round development of students, nurturing their social, emotional, and physical well-being while promoting academic excellence. Through encouraging self-reflection, resilience, and the cultivation of qualities like open-mindedness, integrity, and compassion, it empowers IB students to become confident, self-motivated individuals prepared to tackle future challenges. With its holistic approach, emphasis on global perspectives, and dedication to personal growth, the IB is an ideal fit for a girls' education, enabling them to cultivate self-awareness, excel academically, and emerge as confident, compassionate leaders within a nurturing and inclusive environment.

The programme's rigorous standards and emphasis on academic integrity and intellectual curiosity prepare students for the demands of higher education ensuring an ability to thrive in diverse and dynamic environments.

Lifelong Learners

By fostering curiosity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, the PYP and MYP cultivate a lifelong love of learning. Students develop a growth mindset, becoming independent thinkers who actively seek knowledge, ask meaningful questions, and take ownership of their learning journey.

What is the Learner Profile?

The IB Learner Profile lies at the heart of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and serves as a guiding framework for students' development. It encompasses ten attributes that shape individuals into globally minded, compassionate, and reflective learners. The IB Learner Profile encourages students to strive to be inquirers, thinkers, and communicators. It emphasises developing attributes such as being knowledgeable, open-minded, and principled. The Learner Profile also fosters the growth of caring, balanced, and reflective individuals who are courageous risk-takers. By embracing the IB Learner Profile, students cultivate the skills, attitudes, and values necessary to navigate the complexities of the world, contribute meaningfully to society, and become lifelong learners committed to making a positive impact.

At Tara Anglican School for Girls, we believe in the power of an IB education to shape agentic learners of today, and the leaders and thinkers of tomorrow. Our students benefit from the academic rigor of the NSW curriculum while embracing the IB framework, which enhances critical thinking, global perspectives, and personal development.
