Scholarships and Bursaries

The King's School is fortunate to be able to offer a range of Scholarships and Bursaries for entry to Years 7 to 11. Many of these awards have been established as a result of the generosity of parents, friends, associated organisations and bequests.

The majority of Scholarships are awarded for entry into Year 7. A limited number of awards may also be offered for entry into Years 8 to 11.

Scholarships may be full or partial awards towards the cost of tuition.

Some scholarships are means tested.

Bursaries are given to help with boarding costs and are subject to an assessment of financial capacity.

Scholarship Assessment examinations are held in February and are followed by interviews for short-listed applicants and subsequent advice.

As a guide, there are usually in excess of 400 applicants for Scholarships annually.

Awards Available

Scholarship and Bursaries may be awarded to students entering Years 7 to 11 who are Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents for a combination of academic, character, music or all-around abilities.

Boarding Bursaries

It is important to The King’s School that our community and families are supported in boarding through Bursaries.

The 2023 Bursary applications have now closed. New Bursaries are listed in October each year.


Bursary awards are separate to the outcome of the scholarship examination, although students are still expected to sit the scholarship exam.

We encourage all families who require financial aid to apply for Bursaries.
