The award of a scholarship is at the discretion of the Headmaster, and not all scholarships are awarded each year. Boys must have Australian residency or citizenship. Online applications open in mid-January and close at the end of April each year.

Applications close on 18 April 2015 for overseas applicants; on 22 April 2015 for regional and inter-state applicants and 27 April 2015 for Perth-based applicants.
Online application questions
The online application involves a series of questions to be completed by a boy’s parent or guardian and a series of questions for students to complete. It takes up to 30 minutes or more to finish and can be revisited and amended once the application fee has been paid and password access is emailed to you. It is very important to answer the questions as comprehensively as possible.
Year 7 scholarship examination – Saturday 9 May 2015
All applicants for academic, regional residential (boarding), music and drama scholarships have to sit the scholarship examination on Saturday 9 May. The scholarship exam is administered by a third party - Academic Assessment Services (AAS), based in Sydney. The application fee of $100 covers the scholarship examination and all Christ Church sponsored scholarships.
Music - Saturday 02 May 2015
Drama - Saturday 16 May 2015
Overseas, regional and interstate applicants
If a student lives far enough away from Christ Church, either overseas, interstate or in regional/remote Western Australia, then he may be able to sit the exam at his current school. If this is the case, Academic Assessment Services will advise and instruct on the procedures you are required to follow.
Tuition Fees for scholarship recipients
A scholarship recipient receives a reduction on school fees to varying degrees. In general, this is to the value of 50% of the normal tuition fees. However, it is worth noting that school fees at Christ Church are inclusive and comprehensive and cover many aspects of a boy’s schooling including textbooks and course materials; software and the provision of the latest ICT equipment; study skills support; camps and excursions; and school publications. Family access to the School’s gymnasium, swimming pool and library is also included.
