The Athletic Association of the Great Public Schools of New South Wales (AAGPS), also known as GPS or Great Public Schools is an association of mostly private boys' schools in New South Wales, Australia that share common interests, ethics, educational philosophy and contest sporting events among themselves. AAGPS was formed on 30 March 1892, and today has nine members - eight Sydney schools and The Armidale School, a country boarding school.

Major sports are typically also played against various members of the Combined Associated Schools (CAS) and to a lesser extent members of the Independent Schools Association (ISA). While these games do not form part of the official GPS Championship, some (such as Joeys v Knox and Scots v Cranbrook Rugby) are developing into significant events.

Of NSW's 130 Rhodes Scholars 1904-2006, 85 have attended a GPS School. [http://www.usyd.edu.au/registrar/rhodes/previous.shtml "NSW Rhodes Scholars"] — University of Sydney list, (retrieved 29 June 2006)]

History

The Athletic Association of the Great Public Schools of New South Wales (AAGPS) was formed at a meeting held at Gunsler’s Café, new Circular Quay, on 30 March 1892. The Schools represented at this first meeting were The King's School, St Ignatius' College, St Joseph's College, All Saints College, Bathurst and the North Shore Grammar School (Shore). On 12 April, representatives from Sydney Grammar School, Newington College and Cooerwull Academy joined those who had attended the first meeting.cite web|url= http://portals.studentnet.edu.au/sports/base.aspx??tabindex=10&tabid=162|title= AAGPS History|accessdate= 2008-03-24|work= Info|publisher= Athletic Association of the Great Public Schools of New South Wales]

A third meeting was held on 28 April 1892, where membership of the AAGPS was clarified, and St Patrick's College, Goulburn, St Stanislaus College, Bathurst, and The Scots College joined those Schools who attended the first two meetings.

Sydney High School applied for membership in March 1894, but were not accepted for admission until 14 February 1906. The final entrant was The Armidale School, who were admitted to the Association on 7 May 1897.
