Ag focus central at Farrer school

FARRER Memorial Agricultural High School has established an enviable reputation as a centre of excellence in academics, agriculture, welfare, sports and academic programs.

Catering to the education of both day and boarding students, Farrer is the sole government provider of boys’ education in a regional setting, and the only boys’ agricultural school in Australia.

The school is set on 191 hectares of prime agricultural land, 10 kilometres from Tamworth and has 600 students enrolled: 350 boarders and 250 day boys.

Farrer is committed to a holistic, integrated approach to develop a culture of academic success, providing a broad curriculum with an emphasis on whole school programs. Agriculture is a central focus, providing opportunities for problem solving and practical education that flow on to all aspects of the school.
