Scholarships

2024 Scholarship applications are now open.

Scholarships are awarded to students to assist in their academic pursuits as we continue to build a culture of excellence at School.

Scholarships are available for students who demonstrate a high degree of academic excellence for their cohort. Each scholarship serves the school in building a culture where students are challenged and excited about learning.

These scholarships are available to students entering Years 7, 9 and 11. They are awarded to students who perform best in the Scholarship Examination. If awarded, a scholarship may result in up to 50% (Year 7 and 9) or 100% (Year 11) reduction of school fees for two years.

Scholarship students are expected and encouraged to lead their peers well in their academic pursuits as they participate in school activities and strive to reflect the character of our School.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

If you have registered your interest before the opening date, you will be sent the scholarship information at the commencement of the opening date.

If you are wishing to apply while scholarships are open, please request a scholarship application pack through the below form.  

All scholarship applications will include:

  • Signed application forms (for external students this will include enrolment application forms and the $100 application fee)
  • A cover note from the student on why they are applying
  • Applicant resume

Understanding the process

Once you have submitted your scholarship application, a scholarship assessment will be conducted with all external applicants. Internal candidates will be assessed based on current academic progress and other standardised testing. Once this has occurred, candidates will be selected. Preferred candidates will be interviewed by a panel convened by the Director of Teaching & Learning. This panel will recommend candidates for a scholarship to the Principal. The Principal will make the final decision on who will receive the scholarship and successful candidates will be notified in writing by the end of Term 2.
