Scholarship Guidelines

The award of a scholarship requires a positive commitment to the life of the school. Scholars are expected to make a significant contribution to their department. For this reason, candidates may apply for a scholarship in one discipline only.

Typically, one award is made for each discipline in each age group however an exhibition may be awarded to a candidate who shows promise but is not yet at the full scholarship standard. The school will request a reference from your current school prior to assessment.


All scholarship candidates must be registered with the school to pursue an application.
