At Grammar, we are always looking for boys who are curious and keen to learn. If you love science or maths, languages and reading, and you are also keen on music, debating, drama or sport, then you should think very seriously about coming here. Although this is a private school which charges fees, you and your family should not let the fees put you off. Every year we set aside up to 24 places for boys of special intellectual talent and their fees are paid for them by the School.
Some of our scholarships are outright awards, others are means-tested. Means-tested scholarships are specifically set aside for candidates who would be unable to afford the normal tuition fees (currently $28,500 per annum). If you think you might qualify for a means-tested scholarship, then please tick the means-testing box at the bottom of the registration form. This will mean you are applying for ALL scholarships (outright and means-tested awards), thereby increasing your chances of a scholarship.
All candidates must take the scholarship examination and be prepared to attend an interview. Academic coaching is not necessary, in fact we strongly discourage it. Most boys who are awarded scholarships each year have not been coached.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SCHOLARSHIP REGISTRATIONS WILL CLOSE AT 3.30PM THIS FRIDAY, 22nd FEBRUARY.
Each year we also offer two scholarships to boys with outstanding musical talent entering Form I (Year 7). In making the awards, we take into consideration the result in the School’s general Entrance Examination (to be held on Wednesday, 8 May, 2013), the character of the candidate and his musical talent, including his performance on an instrument.
Auditions will be held on Friday, 15 and Monday, 18 March, 2013 between 3.00 and 6.00pm. Applications will close on Friday, 8 March, 2013 and no entries will be accepted after this date.
For an application form and further information, please contact Margrit Bachmann on 9332 5895 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Candidates are asked to assemble in the New Hall at the School by 8.15am Saturday, 2 March, 2013.
Entry is via Yurong Street only. Please do not enter the School via College Street or Stanley Street, as there will be sporting fixtures being played on that date. No parking will be available on School grounds.
Boys should bring with them pens, pencils, a ruler and an eraser, as well as something to eat and drink for Recess.
The examination will finish at approximately 12.30pm. Before you enter the School, please arrange with your son where you will meet him at that time.
We expect to have the results in late March and will ring the short-listed candidates to arrange an interview as soon as possible afterwards. Unsuccessful candidates will be notified by mail after the April school holidays.
Please do not hesitate to ring Virginia Cains on 9332 5805 or email email@example.com if you have any questions.
