The Hutchins School and The Hutchins Foundation are offering the following scholarships:

Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are offered for entry at Year 5, 7 and 11. Scholarships offer discounts on tuition fees up to 50%. Scholarships are granted for the duration of the student’s education and are subject to the maintenance of excellent academic performance levels as well as contributing to the life of the School. Students may hold only one scholarship at any one time.

A student who holds a scholarship from a previous entry is eligible to sit for a higher value scholarship when he reaches the appropriate year. If he is then awarded the higher value scholarship he forfeits the previous one.

Academic Scholarship tests are conducted by Edutest, an independent assessor. All applicants are required to sit this scholarship test and some will be invited to attend a subsequent formal interview.

Please contact our Enrolments Assistant on (03) 6221 4236 or email if you have any further queries.

Applications for Academic Scholarships for 2021 are now open. 

Applications close Friday 6 March 2020.

Examinations will be held on Saturday 14 March 2020.
