Each year, Preshil seeks applications from girls and boys who do not currently attend Preshil and who believe that Preshil can offer them an opportunity to further their creativity and independent thinking, in any area of learning.
Scholarship admission is dependent on the quality of the application, on the suitability of the applicant for the Middle Years and Diploma courses of the International Baccalaureate, their demonstration of the qualities of the IB Learner Profile, and on the number of places available.
The applicant’s understanding of, and capacity to contribute to, the Preshil school community will also be taken into account. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal, whose decision is final.
Applicants are not required to sit a scholarship examination, rather applicants are asked to submit a portfolio of material that shows evidence of creative, innovative and imaginative endeavour in any field of learning and of their capacity to contribute to the Preshil community. Selected applicants will be invited to an interview with the Principal where they will also be required to complete a short written task associated with demonstrating some element of the IB Learner Profile.
Scholarships are usually for either 50% or 25% remission of tuition fees from Years 7, 9 or 11 to Year 12. Extra costs such as the Enrolment Agreement Fee, camps, music lessons and books are not covered by the Scholarship.
Scholarships are awarded with the expectation that successful applicants will continue through to the end of Year 12, and are subject to annual review by the Principal, who reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship with reasonable notice, should the scholarship holder’s progress or commitment to the school prove to be unsatisfactory.
For each applicant, parents are required to provide all information requested in the Scholarship Application form and the usual Application for Enrolment. A single non-refundable application fee of $121 is charged and must be paid at the time the application is made. In light of the current landscape, Scholarship applications for Years 7 and 11 2021 commencement remain open.
