Scholarship examinations for private schools have a different purpose from ordinary classroom tests. While a school exam aims to measure what has already been taught, scholarship exams aim to predict the future achievement of the child. The majority of scholarships offered will cover a portion of the annual school fee. It is rare for a child to receive an offer of 100% remission of school fees. Most private schools offer a 50% reduction in fees, whilst some offer 25% and possibly less than this. Additional fees usually apply for other incidentals, such as sport and information technology.

What Our Clients Say

Teacher Writing a Formula on a Blackboard

Year 8 Student

“…how pleased we are that our son participated in the workshop and trial exams at Hendersons in preparation for the entrance examinations for the prospective schools. We feel that this programme was

very helpful, especially given that some of the subject matter had not actually been covered at his school. Our son felt he did particularly well in the exams as a direct result of his experiences at Hendersons. We are pleased to relate he was very successful in the actual examinations”.
