Our scholarships program

The Christ Church Grammar School Scholarship Program aims to recognise and support students in their pursuit of excellence.

Those students awarded scholarships will be of exemplary character and share the values of our school community. They will exhibit qualities such as integrity, leadership, initiative, care and compassion for others, and personal responsibility.

A scholarship entitles the recipient to a partial remission of tuition fees only and does not cover textbooks, uniforms or excursions.
