Scholarships and Bursaries Overview


St Luke’s Anglican School is committed to providing outstanding educational opportunities for new and existing students that demonstrate excellence in their standard of achievement.

St Luke’s offers a range of academic and specialist scholarships for students entering Middle (Year 7 – 9) and Senior (Year 10 – 12) School.   Successful scholarship recipients will receive a discount on part of the tuition fees.

Scholarships are available in the following areas:

  • All-Round Ability
  • Performing Arts
  • Sporting Performance

All applicants (Academic and Specialist) require a student to maintain high levels of:
