Why Bishop Tyrrell
Because education is a gift for life
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. Not every school will be the right fit for your family. So why choose Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College?
At Bishop Tyrrell we believe in a childhood filled with joy, hope and affection, a childhood in which children know that they are known and valued, where they learn to trust themselves and each other. Children should be made to feel they can find and express their voice, discover the difference they can make for themselves and others, learn to think for themselves, to question, to collaborate, to be independent, to own and take charge of their learning and their lives.
