School Information

Our site vision of ‘Students are well prepared for a changing world in which they view learning as a means of creating better life opportunities’ is the mantra to which we address teaching and learning directions and guides the Site Improvement Priorities for TBAS.

Our focus on Literacy and Numeracy has resulted in celebrated sustained success as a ‘school demonstrating substantially above average gain’ in specific areas for the past two years. We now look to add scope to this through the lens of Growth Mindset and promoting high academic stretch across our site.

We partner with Encounter Youth Education™ to provide research-based, up-to-date and holistic alcohol & other drug education for our student body
