To encourage a culture of excellence Arden offers scholarships to students who can display a high standard of achievement. Scholarship opportunities are offered to students who can combine their abilities with responsible attitudes, leadership potential and a proactive and positive contribution to School life.

Scholarships available in 2019:

Year 7 – Academic Scholarships
Year 7 – Music Scholarship
Year 11 – Academic Scholarships

2019 SCHOLARSHIPS – Registrations NOW Open

Arden’s School Council provides for a maximum of two academic scholarships for students who exhibit outstanding academic ability entering Year 7 and two academic scholarships for Year 11. The School also provides for a music scholarship to be awarded to a student exhibiting outstanding musical ability entering Year 7. These scholarships allow for the remission of either whole or part of a student’s tuition fees.

Scholarships are subject to annual review but are normally tenable until Year 12, subject to continuing satisfactory performance and conduct. Arden reserves the right to not offer any scholarships if there are no suitable candidates. These scholarships are open to candidates who are existing students of Arden, those who have been offered a place to start at Arden in 2019, or those who are yet to submit an Enrolment Application.


Our scholarship testing program is run by Academic Assessment Services. All candidates must register via Arden’s Scholarship registration site: Scholarship Academic Assessments. Here you will find detailed information about scholarships offered.
