Inspiring the curious
Welcome to Trinity Anglican School (TAS), the leading independent school in Far North Queensland, based in the beautiful tropical city of Cairns.
The core belief of our school is that every student can succeed and meet their academic potential with the right support and environment. TAS is a community that nurtures the individual strengths of students and fosters curiosity to create outstanding young men and women.
Over the past 30 years, TAS has built a strong reputation for incredible academic excellence, community spirit, outstanding pastoral care, and support for the personal growth of students. Our students are dedicated in their partnership with teachers to improve their performance, and our integrated and supportive learning environment provides teachers with the flexibility to individualise the learning for each student.
I look forward to meeting you and hope you'll visit one of our beautiful campuses to discover more about TAS and the powerful advantage of a TAS education
- Paul Sjogren, Principal
Building on what is learned in the classroom, TAS students are provided with extensive opportunities to participate in extension and enrichment programs.
Customised to suit each campus, the extensive list of options includes academic, wellbeing, creative, sporting, technology, and specialty co-curricular programs.
At their foundation, extension and enrichment opportunities allow students to explore their curiosities and increase skill sets across several learning environments.
Our school values are reinforced through the school Pastoral Care Program, a key pillar of which is the verticle house system, which nurtures a sense of belonging and acceptance for students.
Within each house, students are allocated to a tutor group. This maintains day-to-day contact, aids a sense of community, and nurtures the student.
The Pastoral Care Program also ensures each student develops a strong sense of belonging and fosters essential life-long skills, including resilience, social etiquette, and emotional intelligence.
In addition, the well-being of students, families, and staff are supported by internal and external resources. Within the school, community groups exist for many specialty areas of the school. Students can also seek guidance and support from a counselor who can recommend external support when needed.
Dear parents and guardians,
We believe that the opportunities available to our students at Trinity Anglican School in Music, Sport, Drama, the Arts, our highly-awarded Outdoor Education program and International Education opportunities (through our membership of the Round Square organisation of schools from around the world) are second to none.
With a coeducational student body, a high-performing academic program and a culture that encourages and supports all students to strive for academic achievement, it means that an education at Trinity Anglican School is the most important and valuable investment in your child’s future. Combined with a service program aligned with the IDEALS of the Round Square philosophy (Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership, Service), our graduates move onto the next stage of their lives with the tools to meet any challenge and succeed in their chosen field.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Princiapl Paul Sjogren

All 2021 Year 12 graduates were awarded an ATAR, with the vast majority completing 6 general subjects, where their “best 5” are used to calculate their ATAR. How each subject result impacts an ATAR calculation depends on (i) the individual result and (ii) the “weighting” of that subject where subjects considered “difficult” or “challenging” traditionally are weighted higher. Consequently, ATARs in the 99’s tend to be achieved by students who do very well in at least 5 of the more traditionally challenging subjects.
When we broadly analyse subject results, it becomes clear that TAS students do very well at both overall subject grades and external assessment results. By monitoring these results and referring back to historical performance, we are able to pinpoint areas where we can investigate and analyse to greater depth and thus seek strategies for improvement. This is part of our continuous improvement cycle.
We know that TAS students generally perform well academically, and the growth in performance shown from Year 9 NAPLAN to Year 12 ATAR is a significant part of that success.
