Council Scholarships

Applications for our 2021 Council Scholarships have now closed.

Selection process

Council Scholarship applicants are required to sit a scholarship examination which is held in March each year prior to Year 7 entry.


Academic

Each year Council Entrance scholarships are offered for general academic excellence and awarded annually to boys entering Year 7. Each scholarship has a value of up to 50 percent of the school tuition fees. A Council Entrance scholarship, while subject to annual review, is tenable for the duration of a boy’s education at Christ Church.

Music

Music scholarships are awarded annually to boys entering Year 7 who demonstrate outstanding instrumental ability, enthusiasm and commitment. Each scholarship has a value of 50 percent of the school tuition fees plus free tuition on up to two instruments. The scholarship, while subject to annual review, is tenable for the duration of a boy’s education at Christ Church.

In order for the School to understand each boy’s academic level and musical ability, applicants are required to sit a scholarship examination and attend a 10-minute audition at the School.

Applicants will be required to perform two contrasting pieces on one instrument or one piece each on two instruments. Applicants can arrange their own accompanist if desired. It is recommended that applicants be of at least 4th grade AMEB equivalent on the instrument of choice. No scales or technical work is required; however, candidates will be asked about their aspirations and commitment to ensembles and choirs.

Boarding scholarships

Boarding scholarships are awarded for all-round achievement and are valued at up to 50 percent of the tuition fee. The scholarships are open to boys entering the Senior School as boarders in Year 7. Applicants should come from a rural background with a residential address in regional Western Australia.

The award of a scholarship is based on all-round ability, however, in order to assist us to understand each boy’s academic level, applicants are required to sit a scholarship examination either at the School or, if they live too far from Christ Church, at their current school (conditions apply).

The award of a scholarship is tenable for Years 7 to 10 in the first instance and for Years 11 to 12 subject to continuing satisfactory reports to the Principal on the student’s work and contribution to Christ Church.
