Academic tuition fee reductions are available to students of outstanding sport or cultural ability, supported by sound academic progress. These scholarships are offered to incoming students in Years 11, 12 and 13.
Academic tuition fee reductions are available to students of outstanding ability in cultural or sporting areas, and supported by favourable academic progress and achievement, who are not already attending St Andrew’s College.
All scholarships represent a subsidy on tuition fees. The amount of fee reduction will depend on the all-round or specific qualities of the applicant and will be in the form of an offer made, in writing, by the Head of the Secondary School. There is no charge for applying for a sporting/cultural scholarship, but there is a $1500 acceptance fee if an offer of enrolment is made for 2025, which is applicable to all students entering the Secondary School, including scholarship winners.
The successful candidates for cultural scholarships in Music will be expected to take Music as a subject as part of their academic programme in Years 12 and 13.

Winter: rugby, netball, basketball, hockey, football
