Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships

The school offers a number of Academic scholarships each year (at a range of discount levels on tuition fees) to students entering Years 5–6, Year 7 and Year 11. The Academic scholarships are open to students presently enrolled at the school and to students wishing to enter St Andrew’s Cathedral School from 2022.

The school expects all Academic scholarship holders to display a high standard of achievement. The school trusts that the privilege of receiving a scholarship will build responsible attitudes, develop leadership potential and enable students to take a positive role in school life.
