The Wentworth Trust Broad offer a small number of Entrance Scholarships each year to potential new students wishing to enter Wentworth either as a Year 7 student (the beginning of the Intermediate years) or a Year 9 student (the start of the College years). Entrance Scholarships are based on a mix of academic, cultural (Music, Art, Dance etc) and sporting excellence. Students would need to excel in at least two of these three criteria in order to be awarded a scholarship. Scholarships are awarded by way of a discount off the annual tuition fees, ranging in value from $2,500 to $5,000pa.
Scholarship examinations are held around July each year. If you wish to have a scholarship information pack posted to you, please contact the school office, either by email or by phone on 09 424-3273.
