Our Scholarship Philosophy
Thanks to the generosity of donors in our community, a range of scholarships are available to assist worthy students in their dreams of a TAS education. All our scholarships require your child to sit the annual scholarship examination, there are also music and creative arts scholarships awarded on audition.
Our All Rounder Year 7 Entry Scholarships are awarded after sitting the scholarship exam as well as showing evidence of all round ability and merit in fields such as sport, creative arts, leadership and service.
Year 8 - 11 Academic Scholarships are awarded each year on merit following the annual academic scholarship exam.
To be considered for an Academic Scholarship for 2025, you must complete the AAS (Academic Assessment Services) Examination that is to be held the morning of Scholarship & Open Day on Monday 19 February 2024 at The Armidale School.
Academic Scholarships are available for students entering TAS in Years 8-11, 2025.
Based on the AAS Scholarship Examination results, previous academic record, and an interview with the Principal for shortlisted applicants, scholarships may be offered to students who exhibit qualities compatible with the aims and ethos of TAS.
Academic Scholarships are open to external students and students currently attending TAS.
Academic Scholarships to The Armidale School are part-fee scholarships ie the maximum award offered is 50% of the tuition and/or boarding fee, whichever is applicable.

Scholarships for Aboriginal students
Since 2011, TAS has worked in conjunction with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) who fund a number of boarding scholarships for Aboriginal students each year in various boarding schools across Australia. We are proud of our connection with AIEF and encourage any Aboriginal student wishing to be educated at TAS to first complete the Indigenous Scholarship Enquiry Form below.
AIEF is a private sector-led, non-profit organisation focused on empowering Aboriginal children in financial need to build a future through quality education and career pathways at Australia’s leading schools, universities and companies. The student must be accepted for enrolment at TAS before a scholarship recommendation is made to AIEF. Awarding AIEF scholarships are provided to students where the intent is to continue at TAS until the end of Year 12. Upon completing the Enquiry Form below, further information about AIEF Scholarship will be sent to you.
Our Scholarship Policy - the fine print
It is important to note that our scholarships are awarded to those students who are intending to pursue studies to the Higher School Certificate at TAS. The expectation is that a student, in accepting a scholarship will remain at TAS for the duration of his or her secondary education. Payment of remaining School fees and any incidental costs must be kept current at all times.
All scholarships remain dependent upon the ongoing availability of funds designated to the School for this purpose. Accordingly, in offering these financial scholarships, the School does so subject to the continued availability of those funds and reserves the right to withdraw in whole or part the award and/or to vary its duration in the event of those funds no longer being available.
