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 in 2026. Please click on the drop down menus below for further information on each of the scholarships.

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 portfolio submission, 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 country candidates can elect to sit the examination remotely.

Please note that applicants do not need to submit a Pymble Application for Enrolment form at this stage.

Criteria and Steps to Apply

  • Candidates are to be in Year 5 and less than 12 years of age on 31 December of the examination year.
  • Candidates must be a Boarding student from a rural region (not necessarily NSW).
  • Successful candidates must commence in Year 7 2026.
  • The scholarship covers full or part remission of tuition fees (excluding extras) for six years. Boarding fees and all other expenses are to be met at the full rate.
  • Scholarships will be reviewed on an annual basis and it is the College’s expectation that recipients of this Scholarship uphold Pymble’s five core values (Care, Courage, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility) and represent the Boarding community with pride.
  • The College Board reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship from any scholarship holder.

Successful scholarship recipients will be required to pay a $2000 bond when accepting the scholarship within 72 hours of offer. This Bond will be put towards the Term 2 Fee Instalment in 2026. The Bond will be forfeited if the student does not commence at the College.

Successful scholarship recipients are also required to submit an online Enrolment Application form and pay the Application fee of $440 within 72 hours of offer and accept the Confirmed Place Enrolment offer (no additional fees required) within two weeks of the scholarship acceptance.

Pymble Ladies’ College offers students from rural and regional Australia full or part remission from academic tuition fees (excluding Boarding fees and extras) to a Boarding student entering Year 7 to 11 2026. The Boarding Scholarship has been extended to include students living in rural regions and no longer requires parents to be a Primary Producer.

We hope these scholarships will provide opportunities for country students to access our supportive learning community.
