Pymble Ladies’ College offers a number of academic scholarships providing full or part remission from academic tuition fees (excluding extras) to students entering Year 7. Applications are open to internal Pymble students and external students. Internal students are awarded a Rosalie Ramsay scholarship. The awarding of scholarships is determined by results in the scholarship examination and successful interview.

All candidates for Year 7 2026 scholarships must sit the Academic Assessment Services examination on Sunday 11 August 2024.

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

Criteria and Steps to Apply

All applications for scholarship testing must be made online through Academic Assessment Services (AAS).

Candidates are to be in Year 5 and less than 12 years of age on 31 December of the examination year.

Candidates must be Australian Citizens or International students who have a valid Australian visa. Overseas Student subclass 500 visa holders are not eligible to apply

Candidates must submit a 300 to 500 word autobiographical essay indicating their special interests and the contribution they would make to the life of the College. This essay will be requested when registering to sit the test with AAS.

Amongst the Junior Academic Scholarships, our current Pymble Year 5 students are eligible for the internal Rosalie Ramsay Junior Academic Scholarship.

Successful candidates must commence in Year 7 2026.

The Scholarship covers full or part remission of tuition fees (excluding extras) for the duration of the student’s enrolment at the College. All other expenses are to be met at the full rate. Expenses such as textbooks, co-curricular sport and activities, uniforms and laptop levies are not covered under this scholarship.

Successful scholarship recipients who are not a current Pymble student will be required to pay a $2000 bond when accepting the scholarship within 48 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 who are not a current Pymble student are also required to submit an online Enrolment Application form and pay the Application fee of $440 within 48 hours of offer and the Enrolment Acceptance and Entry Fee of $4400 within two weeks of the scholarship acceptance. These fees are not refundable.

Scholarship recipients are expected to uphold Pymble’s five core values (Care, Courage, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility) and represent the College with pride.

Scholarships will be reviewed on an annual basis and it is the College’s expectation that students maintain a high academic standard throughout their schooling.

The College Board reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship from any scholarship holder.
