Scholarships

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.  Should a student leave the School prior to completing Year 12 repayment of the concession received may be deemed repayable at the discretion of the Headmaster.

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).
