Anybody had experience to be awarded a scholarship when entering year 7 at Saint Kentigern College? How good you have to be academically for a partial or full scholarship at year 7 entrance?
I received a scholarship to the College, but I entered at Year 9. However, I’d be surprised if the process was too different.
For a partial scholarship, it’s not overly difficult. 50% is harder to attain than 25% - I know quite a few students who received 25% scholarships: they would’ve probably been in the Top 10% of their class when they received the scholarship (though many dropped down as they got older - it’s extremely hard to have a scholarship revoked I believe).
For the 50%, it’s a bit harder - I know of only 3 in my year group (of around 300 students). Hope that gives some context.
I don’t know of anyone who got a full scholarship for academics. I would hesitantly say that they aren’t given (based on this), but I don’t speak for the school.
(The above is relevant only for pure academic - I know of a few kids who got 50% for more holistic scholarships)
