Scholarships

Overview

Glenaeon offers scholarships for new and existing students in our Middle and Senior Schools. Scholarships reflect our ethos of making our education as accessible as possible.

Students benefit from the opportunity to experience the unique qualities of a Glenaeon education, and the school benefits by attracting students of potential and character to be part of our community.

The number of Scholarships will vary from year to year. Scholarships will offer remission of a range of part and full tuition fees, but do not include the Class Activity Fee, co-curricular fees or other outlayed curriculum fees which are payable.

All scholarship students will have their progress reviewed annually.

Please note that scholarship applications for 2018 have now closed.
