What fee reductions do the scholarships provide?

Scholarship awards cover partial tuition fees of between 25 – 75%.  Additional costs such as uniform items, computer notebook, textbooks, excursions and consolidated charges are not included. The value of each Scholarship may vary depending on the calibre of the applicant. The school reserves the right to withhold a Scholarship (in any Year) if there are no candidates of sufficient merit. All scholarships are subject to annual review and are normally tenable for the length of the recipient’s education at the School, subject to continuing satisfactory progress, performance and attitude. 

Notification of Offer of Scholarship

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by phone or email approximately three weeks following the testing date and invited to attend an interview. The panel interview will include members of the Scholarship Section Committee, usually the College Principal, Head of School and Director of Enrolments & Engagement. 

A letter indicating whether the applicant has been successful or otherwise will be sent to the parents/guardian by the end of Term 1, 2023. The College does not provide feedback to parents on specific aspects of the scholarship process. This includes the applicant’s performance in the scholarship examination, music aptitude test, music audition or any interview. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the College Principal and the College’s decision is final.

A $650 Scholarship Acceptance Deposit will be payable by families to the school on acceptance of an offer of a scholarship. If the student’s enrolment is cancelled or if the student is withdrawn from the College prior to the end of Term 1 2024, this deposit will not be refunded nor transferred to another year or to a sibling.
