As one of Australia’s leading independent schools, Tara Senior School has an outstanding reputation for preparing girls for entry into the country’s top universities and for successful futures.
“We encourage our girls to pursue excellence in all aspects of life, to accept challenges, and build resilience. We want our young women to be prepared for life beyond Tara and to stand strong in themselves” Susan Middlebrook, Principal
The teenage years are crucial to a girl’s development and, whether they are a boarder or a day student, Tara prioritises each girl’s enjoyment of school life to develop confident, responsible and inquiring young people. We’re privileged to have a superior teaching staff who are passionate, caring and driven. Our excellent mentoring and pastoral programs help develop our students both inside the classroom and beyond. The range of opportunities for girls is world class. Tara is large enough to be well resourced and have a complete and thoroughly enriching curriculum, yet small enough to be personal.
Academically, we excel in bringing out the best in each student. From Years 7 to 12 we’re proud to be non-selective and consistently achieve highly in all independent educational results and rankings. Tara Senior School (Years 7-12) has well-resourced learning spaces and specialist facilities devoted to sport, performing arts, design and technology, visual arts and science.
If a passion for learning is developed, a person will never cease to grow, which Tara consistently achieves with its students. Tara has state of the art facilities, resources and academic programs tailored to the way girls learn best. The school also has extensive sport, performing arts, international opportunities and student engagement programs.
