Scholarships

Scholarships are offered to boys who demonstrate an outstanding potential to benefit from, contribute to, and influence others through the school’s Academic, Musical or broader CoCurricular Programs. The focus of these different Scholarships is detailed below.

Scholarships attract a reduction in tuition (but not other) fees as determined by the Headmaster. Scholarships continue whilst the student remains at Trinity, subject both to the school’s standard Conditions of Entry and also to periodical Performance Reviews through which the holder demonstrates exemplary standards of effort, progress, involvement, contribution, and influence on his peers.

Scholarship holders are not only expected to maintain high academic standards but are also expected to make a contribution to the wider life of the school (which extends beyond their core involvement in House Activities, Excursions, Outdoor Education and Sport).

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR GENERAL (ACADEMIC) EXCELLENCE

Several Scholarships for General (Academic) Excellence are offered on the basis of examination and interview to boys entering Years 5, 7 and 9 who demonstrate outstanding academic ability.

The examination is generally held on the first Saturday of March each year and is open not only to current students but also to students from outside the school.

As part of the award process, boys who top the academic examination are invited, together with their families, for an interview with the Headmaster.

A Scholarship for General (Academic) Excellence is subject to a periodic performance review which addresses the criteria applicable to all scholarships at Trinity whilst placing particular emphasis on the standards in the School’s Academic Progress Policy.
