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 are for remission of a portion of the Tuition or Boarding fee, equivalent to 50 per cent. The Equity and Indigenous Scholarships may provide additional remission- please review the individual Scholarship criteria prior to application. Scholarship offers can be withdrawn at the discretion of the Head of School if a student is not meeting the conditions and expectation of the relevant Scholarship, at any time during their enrolment.
