St Benedict’s offers a limited number of scholarships each year to boys entering the College at Grade 8. No Scholarships are offered to boys entering any other grade or to boys who are currently enrolled in another grade at the school.
Whilst boys are usually “invited” to write the scholarship exam, the selection process is open to all boys who wish to participate – including Grade 7 boys from our own Preparatory School.
Only boys who achieved an academic average of 75% at the end of Grade 6 will be admitted to the scholarship process. The examinations consists of two papers usually written in March each year.
Awarding Of Scholarship
This is based on the results of the examination; completion of the Scholarship Application Form; and a formal interview. Academic, sporting, cultural and leadership achievements are all taken into account.
Announcements of offers of scholarships are made in April on a date set by the Independent Schools Association of South Africa.
