If you are interested in a position as a ‘Gappie’ at TAS, you should first make yourself familiar with the school via the website.
TAS is a regional co-educational boarding and day school with a day Junior School (Transition to Year 5) and boarding and day Middle School (Years 6-8) and Senior School (9-12).
Armidale is Australia’s highest city, located on the New England tablelands about midway between Sydney and Brisbane. Home to Australia’s oldest regional university (the University of New England) it is an important centre of education, with agriculture being the main industry.
TAS accepts up to six Gap students at a time, for 12 month period beginning in either late January (for Southern Hemisphere applicants) or July (Northern Hemisphere applicants).
All Gap students are accommodated in their own quarters in a central location in the school, comprising individual lockable bedroom/study, shared bathroom, kitchenette facilities and comfortable lounge room.
You must ensure that you have health insurance for the duration of your stay at TAS. While Gap students coming from the United Kingdom receive reciprocal rights to health insurance in Australia, additional cover is recommended.
To apply for a position as a Gap student at TAS, please email [email protected] with a copy of your CV and two or more references, including at least one from your current school.
The Armidale School is very excited to announce the launch of our new Day Student ‘All-Rounder’ Scholarships. A limited number of scholarships for 50% tuition will be awarded to students who have demonstrated consistent academic achievement and involvement in sport or the creative arts and who would be enthusiastic about the opportunity of a TAS education. New day students entering TAS in Year 9 or above in 2019 are eligible to apply for these entrance scholarships. The closing date for application is Friday 28 September.
