Senior Learning Community Scholarships

The College offers scholarships for two key areas of excellence:

  • Academic Excellence Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate a high level of academic achievement.
  • General Excellence Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate excellence in areas such as Sport, Drama, Music, Debating etc and a high level of academic achievement.

The Senior Learning Community has traditionally offered a limited number of excellence scholarships to students as they entered Year 10. As Year 9 will now become the entry point for the Senior Learning Community, in 2021 scholarships will be offered to students entering both Year 9 and Year 10. From 2021, scholarship applications will only be received from Year 9 students.
