Catering to the education of both day and boarding students, Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School is the sole government provider of boys' education in a regional setting, and the only boys' agricultural school in Australia.
The school has established an enviable reputation as a centre of excellence in academics, agriculture, welfare, sports and academic programs.
It is set on 191 hectares of prime agricultural land, 10 kilometres from Tamworth and has 600 students enrolled; 350 boarders and 250 day boys.
The school continues to move forward with the refurbishment of school dormitories, a newly built state-of-the-art technical and applied studies block and the installation of the air operated cattle yard and handling facility (in partnership with Clipex Fencing and Stockyards).
Farrer is committed to a holistic, integrated approach to develop a culture of academic success.
Agriculture is a central focus, providing opportunities for problem solving and practical education.
Farrer has developed an atmosphere of harmonious cooperation that is the best environment for student productivity and progress.
Experience Day for year 5 students is tentatively scheduled for September 25 and Open Day on March 17 next year.
