Scholarship testing will take place on Saturday, 26 October 2019 at the Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick and City campuses. Auditions for Music Scholarships will take place in late October and early November at the Keysborough campus.

The Round involves an examination followed by interviews for selected candidates, with successful candidates notified early in Term 1. A non-refundable fee of $150, is charged to students who participate in the Annual Scholarship Round.

To be eligible for a scholarship at Haileybury the applicant needs to sit the scholarship exam as outlined above.

Academic and Music Scholarships are tenable until the student has completed Year 12 and cover the School's tuition fee or a fraction thereof. The Haileybury entrance fee, administrative charge and any levies are still payable. Academic and Music Scholarships are awarded during the Annual Scholarship Round in October each year on the basis of a common examination and interview. The examination is conducted by an independent testing agency.  Students applying for a Music Scholarship are also required to audition.

Haileybury scholarships are usually awarded as a 25% to 50% discount on tuition fees. Limited numbers may be offered above this amount.

Please be advised the result of your child/children's test will remain the property of the School and will not be distributed to families or shared with other schools.

No late applications will be accepted.

Music Scholarships are available for entry into Years 7 and 10 at Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick and City campuses.

Students must have completed the following minimum AMEB Grade level or equivalent before the application date:

  • Year 7: AMEB Grade 4.
  • Year 10: AMEB Grade 6.

For audition students must present:

  • A piece on their principal instrument (either unaccompanied or you may bring your own accompanist)
  • Prepared sight reading (provided a few days before the audition)
  • Aural Tests (at the minimum AMEB level for that instrument)

The Music Scholarship will cover the music tuition fee for the principal instrument until and including Year 12. The student must undertake his/her music lessons at Haileybury.

A commitment to perform in Haileybury ensembles for the instrument in which the Music Scholarship is awarded, is an essential condition of holding a Music Scholarship and can be reviewed by the Head of Haileybury Music at any time. It is an expectation that the student will study VCE Music at the School.

Parents of students who are recipients of a Music Scholarship are expected to attend performances and become members of the music parents support group.
