Even before The Armidale School joined the Athletic Association of Great Public Schools of NSW in 1897, sport had been at the very heart of a diverse co-curricular offering. The goal today is, as it has always been, that every student is immersed in an environment where they dare to achieve all that is within them,  - as is the case with every field of endeavour at TAS.


Sport is prioritised highly in our educational philosophy, and as such is a compulsory element of the school’s extensive co-curricular offering. TAS students enjoy participation in sport at all levels from mass participation, through to representative honours at state and even national levels.

TAS believes sport should enhance a student’s academic pursuits, enabling each student to achieve their overall goals for a vibrant and successful life both at school and beyond. As each season commences our boys and girls are filled with enthusiasm and yet, they are well aware of the social responsibility that comes with participating in sport and the importance of maintaining the humility necessary to handle success and failure with the same positive attitude

Our staff are the backbone of this offering and their commitment to the co-curricular experiences of our boys and girls is testament to their belief that all students at TAS have the right to explore, experience and excel in all that they do. Equally important is the contribution of parents and our broader school community, exemplified by the drive and vision of sporting Supporters Groups.

While many of our students excel at the highest level of sporting endeavour, TAS is also proud of those boys and girls who immerse themselves in our offering for the joys that come from the camaraderie, and healthy competition alone.

Our Prefect body continue to focus on school spirit as an holistic approach across the school. Sport is a natural heartland of this school spirit where supporting each other’s efforts galvanises pride and a sense of belonging for every students, as well as bringing the school family, past and present, together as one.
