The academic culture of Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) celebrates intellectual and creative pursuits and places learning at the heart of the school, providing the basis for exceptional educational programmes and personal development opportunities tailored to meet the needs of boys.

The school's strong academic tradition is evident in our eleven Rhodes Scholars and the achievements of our graduating Year 12 cohorts. During their time at Churchie, students are academically extended and challenged in our Aquila gifted and talented programme and take advantage of the best new-generation learning spaces.   

Read below to find out about Churchie's Academic, Choral and Music Scholarships. 


Academic Scholarships

Applications for Academic Scholarships for students entering Years 7 to 11 in 2023 and students entering Year 7 in 2024 have now closed.
Academic Scholarships provide a partial remission of tuition fees commencing in Year 7, or a later year of entry, until the end of Year 12, subject to a semester review.
Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding results achieved in scholarship testing, previous academic records and an interview with the Headmaster or his delegate. Students can sit the scholarship test in Years 5 to 10. The earliest scholarship commences in Year 7.

The Blackmore Foundation Bursary

Applications for the 2023 Blackmore Foundation Bursary have now closed. 

The Blackmore Foundation Bursary is a means-tested bursary offered for the first time to a new student entering Year 7 in 2023 who would be unable to attend the school without financial assistance. The bursary provides remission of up to fifty per cent of tuition fees for Years 7 to 12, as well as up to fifty per cent remission of boarding fees, where applicable.


Music Excellence Scholarships

Applications for Music Scholarships commencing in 2023 have now closed.

Music Scholarships are available for instrumentalists who have achieved at least Grade 5 AMEB performance on a wind instrument, Grade 6 on a string instrument or Grade 6 on piano. Applications for students playing French Horn, Bassoon, Oboe and lower brass instruments are actively encouraged. 

Music Scholarships are for students entering Years 7 and higher and provide remission of school fees through to Year 12. The level of scholarship awarded is dependent on the ability of the student and the needs of the School. Scholarships are awarded solely at the discretion of Anglican Church Grammar School. Competitive entry is based on audition and interview.

The requirements for the audition are not dissimilar to that which would be undertaken for a normal AMEB exam. 

The audition will consist of the following:
  • two contrasting pieces to be played
  • a sight-reading excerpt on an AMEB level consistent with the pieces selected
  • some musicianship questions drawn from the pieces themselves
  • aural tests consistent with the AMEB standard presented.
If students require an accompanist, this will need to be provided by parents.
Auditions will be held from Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 April 2022.
