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. Academic scholarships are open to students presently enrolled at the school and to students wishing to enter St Andrew’s Cathedral School from 2023.
