Established in 1897, Tara Anglican School for Girls has over 120 years experience in educating young people in the Parramatta and Hills region of Sydney. Tara provides for Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 girls, and offers short-term and full-time boarding to girls from Years 5 to 12.
Tara was founded by Mary Elizabeth Waugh in 1897 in Parramatta. She conducted classes for boys and girls. Following Miss Waugh’s death in 1946, the School was moved to All Saint’s Church Hall. In 1947, Tara came under the governance of the Council for the Promotion of Sydney Church of England Diocesan Schools.
In the early 1950s, first secondary classes were offered. A decision made in March 1955 saw the cessation of enrolment for boys.
In 1956, Tara became an independent Church of England School. On 15 October 1956, an ordinance creating a separate internal council for Tara was passed by the Standing Committee of Synod of the Diocese of Sydney.
