Woodleigh School is seeking students with a love of learning; students who try their best every day, whose application, effort and engagement mean that they will find success in almost everything they do.

Creative thinkers, who strive for excellence and are dedicated to their community, are encouraged to apply.

Scholarship Applications

Applications for our 2023 Adventurous Minds Scholarship Program for entry into Years 5, 7 and 10 are now open. Applications close on Friday 3 September 2021.

All candidates are required to sit a scholarship examination being held on Saturday 11 September 2021 at Woodleigh School Senior Campus, 485 Golf Links Road, Langwarrin South (*see Note below). Testing will commence at 9am and conclude at approximately 12.45pm.


Supporting documentation as outlined below must be uploaded by Friday 3 September 2021 via a link provided upon receipt of the scholarship application. A $95.00 non-refundable application fee is charged to cover the administrative and testing expenses and must be paid at the time the application is lodged.

Students applying for entry into Years 5 and 7 in 2023 may apply for an Academic, Music and/or a Principal’s Scholarship. Applications for these scholarships are open to current Woodleigh students and to students not currently attending Woodleigh School:

  • Academic Scholarships are awarded to the most highly able students. Students who display outstanding academic ability on the scholarship test will be invited to an interview with the Principal. 
  • Music Scholarships are awarded to students who show evidence of a high degree of talent in their chosen instrument/s. It is expected that applicants can perform to a minimum standard of AMEB Grade 3 (for Year 7 entry) or AMEB Grade 2 (for Year 5 entry), or a comparable level. 
  • Principal’s Scholarships are awarded based on sound academic potential, a strong desire to learn and the willingness to fully participate in the co-curricular life of the school. Leadership skills, citizenship qualities, a commitment to community service, and a particular talent in Visual or Performing Arts, Music or Sport, are all key selection criteria.

Students applying for entry into Year 10 in 2023 may apply for a Principal’s Scholarship. Applications are only open to students not currently attending Woodleigh School:

  • Principal’s Scholarship applicants should have sound academic potential, a strong desire to learn, and the willingness to give their best to Woodleigh’s extensive co-curricular programs.  We seek creative and imaginative entrepreneurs and young leaders who are committed to our community and work to better themselves and their peers through active contribution and service.  A particular talent in Visual or Performing Arts, Music or Sport, is highly regarded.

Inclusions & Expectations

The 2023 Adventurous Minds Scholarships will range between 20% and 50% remission of Tuition Fees but may be for differing amounts.  Additional costs, such as the Enrolment Application Fee, Student Entry Fee, Consolidated Charge, some camps, Private Music lessons, uniforms and books are not part of the Tuition Fees and are not covered by the scholarship unless otherwise stated.

All Woodleigh School Adventurous Minds Scholarships are awarded with the intention that the successful candidate will continue through to the end of Year 12 and are subject to annual review by the Principal.  If it is felt that the student’s work or behaviour is below standard or inappropriate, or in the case of a Music Scholarship, where the student withdraws from studying their specified instrument, the Principal reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship with reasonable notice.

Results

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted for an interview with the Principal and/or an audition with the Director of Music.  Being invited to an interview or audition is not a guarantee of a scholarship offer.

Unsuccessful applicants will be advised via email at the conclusion of the selection process. This process can take several weeks to complete.

Testing results will not be released.

Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal whose decision is final.

Further Information

It is an expectation that families whose children are applying for a scholarship will have attended one of Woodleigh School’s regular Enrolment Information Sessions and completed a Campus Tour. Bookings can be made via the Woodleigh School website.

(*Note) The scholarship examination is conducted by Edutest Pty Ltd. Registration for a Woodleigh School Scholarship is part of the Edutest results transfer process. If a student applies for more than one school (both of whom use Edutest), then the student will complete one test only at the school with the earliest testing date. The results are then shared with the other school.  A scholarship application must be submitted to each school that you wish to apply for, in accordance with their scholarship application process and requirements.  Students sitting the scholarship examination at another school are still required to complete a short, written piece at Woodleigh School Senior Campus on the morning of Saturday 11 September.  Further details will be provided to those students not sitting at Woodleigh.
