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.

Academic Scholarships

We aim to provide a number of academic scholarships for students entering Years 5, 7 and 10 in 2023. To be considered, all applicants must undertake an academic scholarship test. This test is held at Haileybury’s four Melbourne campuses – Berwick, Brighton, City and Keysborough, and is for entry into that campus.

Applications: We have reached capacity and registration is now closed for City, Berwick, Brighton and Keysborough.

Scholarship examination date: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the testing date has been changed from Saturday, 23 October 2021 to Saturday, 29 January 2022.

Socio-Economic Scholarships

(Including Haileybury Foundation Scholarships)

Socio-Economic Scholarships are open to students entering Year 7 2023 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.
