Peninsula Grammar offers scholarships for students entering Year 7 annually.
Applications for scholarships commencing in 2018 have now closed.Scholarship Selection Testing is conducted on our behalf by ACER, The Australian Council for Educational Research, a well-known, independent, national research and development organization. ACER currently conducts scholarship testing of many thousands of students across Australia.
Please note that a candidate who registers for more than one school using the ACER program will need to sit more than one test. Each school uses a different test and scores are not shared amongst schools when different tests are used. If two schools offer testing on the same day, candidates will have to choose between the schools as results from one test cannot be provided to the other school.
General Excellence Scholarships are awarded to students who do well on the examination and who can demonstrate excellence in areas such as Sport, Music, Drama, Debating, etc. Evidence of achievement will be required from those students who are invited for General Excellence interviews, after the awarding of Academic Scholarships is completed.
The examination includes a test of general reasoning, spelling, reading comprehension, written expression and maths. These tests have been intentionally selected to be appropriate and non-threatening for this age group. Most students find that the testing is challenging but not traumatising, and many even find the experience enjoyable! For further information regarding the structure of the test, please refer to the ACER website.
ACER offers several publications which may assist your child to prepare for the test. Please refer to the ACER website for details.Please note that past tests are not available for purchase.
The School's decision as to the number of Scholarships offered, and to whom, is final. No correspondence will be entered into with parents of children who are not awarded a Scholarship or a Scholarship interview. The School’s enrolment policies and requirements will be taken into account in awarding scholarships.
