The College considers our Boarding community to be the heart of the College. With the majority of our Boarding families residing in rural Australia, we are delighted to be able to provide high quality educational opportunities for our rural community.

The College offers the equivalent of three Boarding scholarships for entry to Years 7 to 11. Please click on the drop down menus below for further information on each of the scholarships.

(Available for entry in Year 7 2023)

Pymble Ladies’ College offers the equivalent of one scholarship providing full or part remission from academic tuition fees (excluding Boarding fees and extras) to a Boarding student entering Year 7. The awarding of an Alanda Clark, Jane Gay and Prudence Papworth Boarding Scholarship is determined by results in the scholarship examination and successful interview. The successful candidate must exhibit a willingness and ability to enter fully into the life of the College and to participate in sporting and co-curricular activities to the best of her ability.

The scholarship examination will be held at the College or remotely (for country candidates and, in some cases, for students living overseas).
