What is private school scholarship ?
Private and Independent Schools Scholarships and Bursaries
Scholarships entitle students to a full or partial remission of tuition fees. Competition for these scholarships is extremely high as there are only 40 or so boys and girls schools in Sydney offering only a few scholarships each. The main points of entry are Year 7 and 11, with some schools offering scholarships at Year 9 level also. Academic merit is the most important selection criteria. However, private schools place as much emphasis on co-curricular activities, which means scholarships are offered to students who are high achievers not only in academics but also in other activities such as music and sports. Students offered a scholarship are expected to maintain their level of high academic achievement throughout high school.
