There has been coverage from one media outlet very recently regarding the horrific attack which occurred in Pyrmont a few days ago. Coverage from that media outlet indicated that a boy from Sydney Grammar School was involved in this attack. That media outlet contacted the School by email for comment. In that email the name of the alleged Sydney Grammar School boy was included. The name included is not a Sydney Grammar School boy. We immediately advised this media outlet of this fact.

Making a Grammar education possible

Sydney Grammar School offers up to 25 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 $36,615 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 2021 Form I (Year 7) Scholarship Exam will take place on Sunday 9 February, 2020, 8.15am to 1pm, at Sydney Grammar School, College Street campus.

Applications for our Form I (Year 7) 2021 Scholarship exam have closed.

Scholarship exam applications for Form I (Year 7) 2022, will open on November 1, 2020.

If you have any queries regarding the 2021 Scholarship exam, 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.
