The Friends' School is a pre-K to 12 co-educational day and boarding school, founded in 1887 and based on Quaker values. Friends' has a strong academic record supported by a recognition of the need to provide pastoral care at all levels of the school. Friends' has a total enrolment of 1297, including a senior college catering for Years 11 and 12 on a separate campus. The Friends' School offers students the choice of the International Baccalaureate, the Tasmanian Certificate of Education and Vocational Education and Training at Years 11 and 12.
Friends' offers on-campus accommodation for regional, interstate and international students in a comfortable, modern environment.
Living in residential accommodation enables students to learn how to live harmoniously with others. Students learn to respect personal differences and to develop social maturity. Considerable emphasis is placed on cooperation and trust in our community. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, but carefully supervised to ensure the well being of all members of the community.
We are an international community and we value our global outlook and connections throughout the world. The cultural and religious backgrounds of all community members are respected.
All members of the residential community contribute to building a strong sense of community. A culture of sharing and mutual respect is fostered. Peer support is encouraged and students are actively involved in decision making about matters that affect their daily lives.
