Secondary Scholarships

Each year Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School offers a number of Scholarships for students entering Years 7 to 11. Our Scholarship program is designed to acknowledge academic excellence and to support the diversity of abilities, talents, interests and backgrounds within our community. We aim to recognise students who will make a positive contribution to the Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School community.

The Scholarship selection process includes results from the Scholarship Selection Test, the students’ application and an interview with the selection panel for shortlisted candidates. Successful candidates will have fourteen days in which to accept or decline a Scholarship offer. Acceptance will be confirmed by return of the signed Scholarship offer and required enrolment documentation.

Scholarships awarded are for the remission of Tuition or Boarding fees by 20% to 50%. All Scholarships offered will include a financial needs consideration and families are requested to complete a financial declaration at application.  Scholarships are valid for the entire time that the student is enrolled at the School but can be withdrawn at the discretion of the Head of School if a student is not meeting the conditions and expectation of the relevant Scholarship.

Applications for entry into 2022 are now open. Applications close Monday, 8 March 2021. (Late applications will be accepted up to 4.00pm Thursday, 11 March, however, will attract a $50 late fee)

Scholarship testing will take place at the School on Saturday, 13 March 2021. Candidates will be requested to arrive by 8.30am for an 8.45am start. Testing will conclude at 12.45pm. Students from remote locations should submit the online Registration Form for Candidates in Remote Areas and ensure that their current School is prepared to supervise the scholarship test.

Please note that students are able to apply for more than one category of Scholarship if they meet the respective Scholarship criteria. Please ensure that all paperwork associated with each Scholarship application is received by the closing date.
