Scholarships and Bursaries

To make a Glennie education available to as many girls as possible, we offer a number of scholarships, in different categories, providing part remission for tuition fees.  In some cases, part remission for boarding fees may also be provided.

Glennie scholarships are generally offered to girls entering Years 7 and 10 and are based on the results achieved in testing.  Scholarships are offered for three or four years and, following a successful review of progress, are continued until the end of Year 12.  Students may apply for more than one category however, only one scholarship will be awarded per girl.

All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Head of School and are subject to an annual review.


Scholarship applications open in January each year for the following year. Online applications can be made via our website in January, until applications close in mid-February.


Scholarship tests are held at The Glennie School in March each year for entry into Year 7 and 10 the following year. The scholarship test is administered by The Australian Council for Education Research (ACER) and supervised by Glennie teachers on test day. The Glennie School does not publish or share examination results with applicants.
