Scholarships

The Armidale School is renowned for its comprehensive and diverse academic, cultural, sporting, service and adventure curriculum that promotes self esteem and leadership, purpose in life, and the confidence to tackle new challenges.

However the School Board, TAS Foundation and generous benefactors are aware that a TAS education may be beyond the financial considerations of some prospective parents.

With this in mind, a range of scholarships have been made available to assist suitable and worthy recipients. While some scholarships require a candidate to sit a scholarship examination, others are awarded on all round ability and merit.

Please note that some scholarships and fees assistance are means tested. For more information on scholarships please see the menu on the left or contact the Director of Enrolments, Mrs Pip Warrick at info@as.edu.au


Fees Assistance

There are a number of named means-tested scholarships and bursaries established by benefactors to the school. These awards are available for the families of both boarders and day students with genuine and demonstrable financial need. Completion of a Fees Assistance Application form is required by all applicants. An interview is also required for students not currently enrolled at TAS.

For all special Scholarships and Bursaries, parents make one application to the school through the completion of the Fees Assistance Application Form which can be obtained through contacting the Director of Enrolments, Mrs Pip Warrick on info@as.edu.au.

TAS Policy for all Scholarship and Fees Assistance

Scholarships and bursaries are normally awarded to students who are intending to pursue studies to the Higher School Certificate at TAS. The expectation is that a student, in accepting an Award, will remain at TAS for the duration of his secondary education. Should a parent/guardian terminate his enrolment at the school, the total sum due, at the time of termination of enrolment, will become due and payable immediately. Payment of present School fees and any incidental costs must be kept current at all times.

Scholarships remain dependent upon the ongoing availability of funds designated to the School for this purpose. Accordingly, in offering these financial awards, 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. For any further information, please contact the Director of Enrolments, Mrs Pip Warrick on (02) 6776 5823, mobile 0428 414 995 or email info@as.edu.au
