Scholarships

Offering opportunities in excellent education


Haileybury is committed to providing high quality education for children of all backgrounds and abilities. However, there are many students for whom independent education may be unaffordable and so we offer a limited number of scholarships across a range of areas including academic, general excellence, indigenous, music and socio-economic.

Scholarship outcomes for General Excellence, Socio-Economic/Foundation, Music and Indigenous will not be available until after Friday, 1 April 2022. Successful candidates who are invited to progress to the next stage of the Scholarship process will be contacted by telephone and invited to attend an interview. Students who are not progressing to the next stage will be advised by email by Friday, 15 April 2022.

Please do not contact Admissions regarding Scholarship application outcomes unless you have not received feedback by Friday, 15 April 2022.

General Excellence Scholarships

We offer a limited number of scholarships to students who might not otherwise be able to access a Haileybury education. Applicants need to demonstrate their commitment to academic excellence, as well as achievement in leadership (both within and external from school), community service, sport and the arts.

General Excellence Scholarships are open for students in Years 4, 6 and 9 in 2023 for entry into Year 5, 7 and 10 in 2024 at our Berwick, Brighton, City and Keysborough campuses.

Further information will be provided in 2023.

Socio-Economic Scholarships

(Including Haileybury Foundation Scholarships)

Socio-Economic Scholarships are open to students entering Years 7 and 10 in 2024 and whose annual family income is below $80,000.

These scholarships are means-tested and are awarded for enrolment at Haileybury’s Berwick, Brighton, City or Keysborough campuses. Socio-Economic Scholarships are tenable until the student has completed Year 12, so long as the means test is satisfied. If family income rises above $80,000 in any financial year, the scholarship for the following year may be reduced at the discretion of the School.

The value of Socio-Economic Scholarships is determined by the School according to its assessment of the family's ability to pay. It may be as much as 100% of the School's tuition fee. While the Haileybury entrance fee is waived, the administrative charge and any levies are still payable.

Further information will be provided in 2023.
