Scholarship and Open Day

Give your son or daughter the chance to experience the dynamic academic, co-curricular, leadership, service and adventure opportunities at one of the leading independent schools in the country. 

Join us for Scholarship and Open Day on Monday 19 February 2024.

TAS Scholarship and Open Day provides an excellent opportunity for prospective families to come and see why TAS could be the school of choice for your son or daughter. See presentations from the Principal and senior staff and hear about the educational and wellbeing philosophy that guides our School. Speak to our teachers, learn about our extensive Academic, Boarding, Co-Curricular, Creative Arts, Challenge and Adventure programs and our Middle School to see first-hand why TAS students excel in so many areas. Tours of the school and the boarding houses will be offered.  There is so much to see and do, that you will need the light lunch we provide!

Students who are sitting for the Academic and All Rounder Scholarship Exam are asked to arrive at the TAS Memorial Hall between 8.10am and 8.20am for registration. The examination commences promptly at 8.30am and will finish at approximately 12.30pm. As you and your child are our guests for the day, the school will provide morning tea, a drink and all materials required for the examination.

If you are visiting TAS for the first time, follow the signs from the school entrance in Douglas Street. Parking will not be available on the school grounds.

Parents are free to explore Armidale after their child has commenced the exam and are then invited to return from 11am for TAS Open Day including a presentation at the Hoskins Centre at 11.45am.

At the completion of the examination and Open Day activities, families are invited to join us for a light lunch in the foyer of the Hoskins Centre. Following lunch, optional tours of the school will be led by staff and senior students, enabling you to see the whole school in action and will include boarding houses for potential boarding students.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child on this occasion and showing you some of the exciting features of our school.


Yours sincerely,
