The Friends’ School is an independent, coeducational day and boarding school situated in the heart of Hobart, Tasmania.
Guided by the Purpose and Concerns, Friends’ thrives on an intrinsic spirit of warmth and friendliness, and its strong community atmosphere reflects the intentions of the founding Quakers whose original vision for the School in 1887 was education for spiritual and intellectual growth.
The Quaker ideals of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Earthcare are at the core of the School’s value system. As a school, we seek to help our students develop as people who think clearly, act with integrity, are sensitive to the needs of others and the environment and hold a global perspective.
We are proud of our consistently high academic results, varied curriculum and co-curricular opportunities, but we are prouder still of our students and all that they go on to achieve. Each students’ individual needs and interests are nurtured at Friends’, where we have a wide range of opportunities for students to explore and develop individual passions and challenge themselves academically.
The Friends’ School has a strong commitment to service, to equality of relationships and to fostering independent and creative thinking.
The Friends’ School offers a unique and well-rounded education in a supportive and engaging environment that is beneficial for students from all walks of life.
