Welcome from the Head


I am honoured to be the Head of Toowoomba Anglican College and Preparatory School (TACAPS), one of Australia’s finest K-12 co-educational independent day and boarding schools for Primary and Secondary aged students. Located in Toowoomba and positioned on the rim of the majestic Great Dividing Range, TACAPS has provided over one hundred years of inspired learning to generations of students.

Toowoomba Anglican College and Preparatory School is an inspirational place where students are celebrated for who they are, and encouraged to reach their full potential. Our pathways provide both a rigorous and relevant range of opportunities and we have a flexible approach to our curriculum design. We are academically non selective but all students are expected to strive for their personal best. We are an inclusive school and children from all backgrounds and locations are welcome.

Our school community offers a vast range of experiences but we also pride ourselves on not being too large. It is important to us that all students, parents and staff members are known and feel valued within our community. Our leading student wellbeing programs are structured around the nationally recognised Kidsmatters and Mindmatters programs. These programs enable our students to cope with the challenges that life provides and enables them to 'bounce forward' rather than backwards when they face adversity.

If exploring this website has been beneficial, then, a personal visit to TACAPS is essential to gain a real sense of our community, and to understand why our students love coming to this school.

To arrange a personal tour of the school, please do not hesitate to contact our Registrar at enrolments@tacaps.qld.edu.au

I look forward to welcoming you to TACAPS in the near future.
