Private Schools in Sydney and NSW Offering Scholarships & What's Tested

There are a number of private schools in Sydney and the NSW area that offer scholarship to students. Scholarship offer students monetary reward (through the reduction of school fees) but it also benefits the school too because by attracting bright students, the results of the schools are more favourable to parents and therefore, it enhances the attractiveness and reputation of the school.

Below is a table of private schools in Sydney and NSW (arranged in alphabetical order) that offer scholarships along with the likely scholarship test provider and likely components of the scholarship exam. As this is a list that will grow, if you don’t see the school that you wish to apply for here, please let us know in the comments below so that we can add it to the list.

For the test maker, to see what they will likely test in the scholarship exam (e.g. written expression, abstract reasoning, humanities, reading comprehension) and a summary of each area, go this this post “Who prepares selective school and scholarship papers?

Otherwise, scroll down for the list of schools.

  • Note that the Test creator or assessment provider is researched from publicly available sources and from school sources. You should also check individually with the school to be 100% sure.

Hello Could you please add Loretto Kirribilli and Wenona to the list. Thank you

Vi from November 04, 2016

Hi Sam! Thanks for your patience. Have added Wenona to the list. I'm unable to see any scholarship enrolments on Loretto Kirribilli's website so have omitted it for now. Cheers
