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 $38,043 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.

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 2022 Form I (Year 7) Scholarship Exam will take place in the first week of February 2021, at our College Street campus. (COVID-19 restrictions permitting). All registered candidates will be advised their specific test time and date by email, on Friday 29 January, 2021.

Registration will be available only via our website from November 1, 2020 until January 28, 2021.

If you have any queries regarding the 2022 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.
