TSS has produced some of the state’s highest achievers across a broad array of fields, from politics to music, business, the arts, fashion, law, medicine, architecture, health sciences, engineering and sport. The diversity of achievements reflects the commitment TSS has always had to providing not simply an education of the highest quality, but one which emphasises the value of a broad, holistic approach to teaching.
The school places great value on instilling the correct approach to learning and the development of good young men, whilst providing a solid platform for them to achieve academic excellence.
While the school proudly celebrates those who achieve excellence in any forum, we place equal weight on a boy’s application to the task and challenges being faced. Students not only receive a mark for their understanding of a particular subject, they also receive a grade reflecting their effort in the classroom which is known as their Diligence score.
Year after year we see that students perform better academically when they are involved in a mixture of cultural and sporting activities, developing strong time management and organisational skills.
Long-time TSS Registrar Katrina Martin says the school prides itself on understanding how best a boy learns.
The TSS interview and admissions process isn’t based on the marks a student receives, nor is it about their parent’s occupation, it’s ensuring the boy has the application required to achieve their best in at our great school.
