Sydney Grammar School


Making a Grammar education possible

Sydney Grammar School offers up to 25 academic scholarships to boys wishing to join Form I (Year 7). We are looking for bright, engaged boys with a love of learning, a curiosity about the world and a passion to get involved in the wide range of co-curricular activities.

Some of our scholarships are outright awards and some are means-tested. Means-tested scholarships are specifically set aside for candidates who could not afford the normal tuition fees (currently $38,043 per annum). If you think you might qualify for a means-tested scholarship, please tick the box at the bottom of the registration form.

All candidates must take the scholarship test and be prepared to attend an interview. Academic coaching is not necessary; in fact, we strongly discourage it.

The Scholarship tests for Form I, 2021 have concluded.

Applications for Form I, 2022, will open on November 1, 2020 and will (strictly) close on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. The Scholarship tests will be held on Sunday 7 February 2021 from 8:00am.

Please note, we do not offer Scholarships in the Preparatory Schools or for entry to the Year groups above Form I.

If you have any queries regarding the 2022 Scholarship tests, please email Tara Rennie at

Music Scholarships

Each year we offer a range of music scholarships (both full-fee and means-tested) to boys with outstanding musical talent entering Form I (Year 7). In making the awards, we take into consideration a boy’s performance on an instrument at audition, his results in the School’s Entrance Assessment and his character.
