A word from the Principal

Welcome to Calrossy Anglican School, Tamworth.  Ours is a vibrant, unique and warm environment that caters specially to the diverse needs of learners from the foundational years of Pre-School all the way to Year 12.  Our warm and enthusiastic staff is committed to student growth academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Multiple campuses around Tamworth promote learning across Pre-School, Primary and Secondary School. Our unique Diamond Model caters to the varying needs of early adolescent boys and girls yet brings students together for the final years of school, in preparation for life beyond.


Along with our commitment to best learning, Calrossy is strongly focussed on relationships and people. As a Christian school we strive to nurture a caring community that reflects the love that God has shown us in Jesus, learning to accept each other, growing to enjoy those around us, tolerating and appreciating differences and celebrating the special talents and needs of our students. We are committed to instilling our Christian values of Integrity, Selflessness, Inclusiveness and Resilience in all that we do.


Secondary boarding for both boys and girls is key to the fabric of Calrossy and we are strongly committed to providing a supportive, flexible and nurturing ‘home away from home’ for our resident students.
