About

Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College - Fletcher, Newcastle, Williamtown

Because education is a gift for life

Located in Fletcher, Newcastle, Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College is a co-educational independent school that offers children the opportunity to complete their entire education journey (Preschool to Year 12) on the one campus.

Educating the whole child — physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually — as a unique individual with their own God-given talents is at the heart of Bishop Tyrrell.

The College was founded by the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle in 1998. Our founding vision of a Christian learning community remains core and is embedded in the fabric of the School as we strive to inspire students to learn, lead and serve in a caring, Christian environment.

Our values-based education philosophy ensures the College consistently produces graduates of outstanding character who aspire to make a positive difference in the world. A Bishop Tyrrell education is a gift for life — an education that empowers students to learn for life, lead for life and serve for life.

This is a philosophy shared by Bishop William Tyrrell, in whose honour the College was named. As the first Bishop of Newcastle, Bishop Tyrrell was a passionate campaigner for quality and accessible education.

While we remain proud of the College’s history, we are also excited about the future.
Our College motto, ‘seize the day’, represents our school philosophy that there is always something to be thankful for, no matter the challenges we face. We look forward to embracing both challenges and opportunities as we continue to seize the day — each and every day.
