A prestigious pre-K to 12 co-educational day and boarding school located in Hobart, Australia, The Friends’ School is recognised not only for academic excellence but also for its provision of outstanding pastoral care at all levels of the school.
Friends’ is an independent, not-for-profit institution which is overseen by a Board of Governors and follows the Australian and IB curricular model. With a thriving student body of more than 1,300, the School cultivates a welcoming, supportive environment while equipping those enrolled with world-class skills through its International Baccalaureate (IB), Tasmanian Certificate of Education and Vocational Education and Training courses.
The Friends’ School is situated in the heart of Hobart, a city which is recognised as the most scenic, safe capital in Australia. While the city offers numerous stimulating art galleries and exciting cultural attractions, the smaller community is far more peaceful, holding fewer distractions and serving as an ideal study location.
Tasmania, Australia’s ‘island state’, hosts an area which is similar in size to Ireland, yet is home to more than half a million residents. The region offers spectacular, unique mountain and coastal scenery, with extensive national parks and World Heritage Areas protecting the island’s wilderness, wildflowers, rainforests and unique wildlife.
