Preparatory/Middle School: Music Scholarships

St Andrew’s College is pleased to offer the following annual Music scholarships for Preparatory School and Middle School students:

Preparatory School, Year 7

Up to one scholarship is awarded each year, covering up to 50 per cent of tuition fees for two years. Candidates attend an audition at which they perform two contrasting pieces from their own repertoire on their musical instrument. They may also be asked to sing short passages by ear and respond to aural tests of pitch and rhythm.

The College is particularly interested in players of woodwind, brass and string instruments, although the ability to sing and play the piano is an added benefit.

Middle School, Year 9

Up to four scholarships are awarded each year, covering up to 50 per cent of tuition fees for five years and possibly covering instrument tuition costs for top candidates. Application is by audition.


These Scholarships have now closed for the 2019 academic year.

Year 9 Sports Scholarships

Talented athletes in Year 8 are invited to apply for a sporting scholarship at St Andrew’s College. There are two types of sports scholarships available.

General Sports Scholarship

All sports are eligible for the General Sports Scholarship. Scholarships provide up to a 50 per cent reduction in tuition fees over five years, with further needs-based assistance which can be applied for.

Target Sports Scholarship

Ten scholarships are available for the College’s core sports of rugby, netball, basketball, hockey, football, cricket and tennis. Scholarships are to the value of $2000 and are a one-off reduction against Year 9 tuition fees. Year 8 applicants must be playing at a representative level in their respective sport.

These Scholarships have now closed for the 2019 academic year.

Year 9 Pipe Band Scholarship

Up to three scholarships are awarded each year, providing a tuition fee discount (usually 50 per cent) for five years, for pipers or drummers. Application is by audition and interview.

This Scholarship has now closed for the 2019 academic year.
