​ Woodleigh School Adventurous Minds Scholarships – Applications Close Friday 4 September

At Woodleigh, we are searching for the next generation of Adventurous Minds – curious students who continuously question, searching for knowledge and understanding.

We are 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.

Applications for Academic, Music and Principal’s Scholarships for entry into Years 5 & 7 in 2022 will open on Monday 13 July 2020. Additionally, this year we are offering a limited number of Homestead Scholarships for students entering Years 5 through 12 in 2021. 

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. 

Homestead Scholarships for 2021 entry are awarded to students who do not currently attend Woodleigh School. 

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 young leaders, who are committed to our community and work to better themselves and their peers through active contribution and service.

All scholarship applicants are required to sit the Scholarship Examination on Saturday 12 September. Creative thinkers, who strive for excellence and are dedicated to their community, are encouraged to apply. Applications close on Friday 4 September, so don't miss out.
