Curriculum

A strong early years focus emphasizes basic literacy and numeracy skills and epitomizes our belief in the necessity for a vigorous beginning to school, a clearly established Middle School for years 7-9 introduces students to a secondary philosophy and timetable in a supported and nurturing environment. We demonstrate an extremely high success rate of SACE completion and proudly tailor senior student pathways including tertiary entry, vocational education and training and school based traineeships to individuals. We strive to offer a broad range of subject areas at TBAS and maximize face to face teaching while value adding to this through provision of subjects through local delivery, open access and a range of RTO’s.
