Figures released by the ABS indicate continued growth for Independent Schools in Tasmania

Enrol­ment data for Tas­ma­nia indi­cates a grow­ing pref­er­ence for Inde­pen­dent Schools, despite the over­all decline in Tas­man­ian school stu­dent numbers.

The Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics has released its report on Schools Data for 2022.

Inde­pen­dent Schools Tas­ma­nia (IST) Exec­u­tive Direc­tor, Tony Cre­han, said, I am pleased to advise that the report con­firms that, despite over­all school stu­dent num­bers in Tas­ma­nia falling by 0.3% in 2022, FTE enrol­ments in Tas­man­ian Inde­pen­dent Schools increased by 2.8% to a record total of 10,705.”

The increase in inde­pen­dent school enrol­ments con­tin­ues the growth trend of recent years with the 5‑year aver­age increase being 3.3% pa.

Tas­man­ian inde­pen­dent enrol­ment share has increased to 13.2% (11.1% Pri­ma­ry and 15.7% Secondary).

This is a tes­ta­ment to the qual­i­ty of edu­ca­tion and pas­toral care offered by our inde­pen­dent schools, and I con­grat­u­late mem­ber school lead­ers and staff on their efforts.”
