A number of Academic and General Excellence scholarships will be awarded to students entering Years 5 – 10 in 2024.

All scholarships offered are subject to academic testing, which will be held on Saturday 11 February 2023.

Scholarships will cover a tuition fee reduction of varying values, up to fifty percent. Should, for financial reasons, you wish to explore the option of additional scholarship support, there is the opportunity to complete a Financial Capability Assessment. The assessment would be completed by an external agency (Edstart) at the cost of the School, and used in determining any increase of scholarship offer up to ninety percent. If this is an avenue you wish to pursue, please indicate this on the application form.
