Why Bishop Tyrrell?

Our students courageously seize every opportunity to embrace learning, support one another and to work positively for the greater good in the community.

Your child will spend many hours of each day and each year in the care of educators and surrounded by their peers. This is why choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent.  

Every child is different and not every school will be the right fit for your family. So, why should you choose Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College?

We understand that childhood is such a short time, and it should be filled with positivity, acceptance, happiness and growth. In addition to offering educational and academic opportunities, we actively assist our students in developing a strong sense of self worth and purpose throughout the journey. We encourage them to trust themselves, express their own voice, and collaborate well with others. 

Conveniently located in Fletcher, surrounded by beautiful natural bushland and wide open space, we offer the perfect setting for students of all ages. 

We believe in educating the whole child, throughout their schooling experience in a supportive environment, following the Anglican Ethos. Bishop Tyrrell is a co-educational, independent school, catering for Preschool to Year 12. This means our students can stay on the one campus for the duration of their early years and education. They are offered exceptional learning opportunities through balanced curricular and co-curricular programs which develop a life-long love of learning and inquiry. We consistently produce graduates who are open minded, compassionate, principled young people, well equipped to serve in their community. We are extremely proud of these exceptional young adults. 

Community is also one of our fundamental values, and we want each student, staff and family member to feel like they belong. We understand the important relationship between home and school. Here at Bishop Tyrrell, parents, teachers and students form a solid partnership and are committed to productive communication. 

We offer great flexibility for working families, and support them in balancing both priorities. The College is well serviced by buses, and our students are transported to and from school in a safe and secure environment. The service covers Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the greater Maitland and Cessnock areas, and this is continually expanding with additional routes. We also have an OOSH service onsite that provides before school, after school and vacation care programs.

The College provides a safe, inclusive learning environment for all, where individuality is celebrated. We believe every child has the right to experience excellence in education and feel supported in their learning and other pursuits. 

We encourage all students to embrace their talents, passions and interests and motivate them to always 'Seize the Day.'
