Tamworth High School is a large, comprehensive country high school, serving students from South and West Tamworth, Calala and from outlying rural communities in the Dungowan and Moonbi valleys including Kootingal and Nundle. It caters for town students who have attended large primary schools and for many rural students from small communities.

Our school's mission statement is that we are "proudly developing caring, community spirited people who are committed to lifelong learning and to achieving their personal best." Tamworth High School is the first established high school in Tamworth, commencing in 1919. It has educated many current members of the Tamworth community and enjoys good community support as a result.

The school has a strong welfare emphasis, encouraging students to develop leadership skills and responsibility for their own behaviour. A stable and experienced staff develops positive relationships with our student and parent body.
