Making a Grammar education possible

Sydney Grammar School offers up to 20 academic scholarships every year. 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 we have on offer. Boys who are curious about the world, love learning and reading, and want to get involved in as many things as possible, might find Grammar to be the school for them.

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 $38,709 per annum). 

The Scholarship process includes boys sitting our tests, with successful candidates being invited to attend an interview. Academic coaching is not necessary; in fact, we strongly discourage it. The tests are an assessment of a boys' current academic ability - we do not provide past papers. All boys wishing to sit the test will need to be present at College Street, remote sitting is not permitted.

Applications for the Scholarship test for entry to Form I (Year 7) in 2023, will open in early November 2021. Please keep an eye on our website closer to the time.

If you have any queries regarding the 2023 Scholarship exam, please email Tara Rennie

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.

For further information, please contact the Music Department on 9332 5895 or email
