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. The awarding of scholarships is determined by results in the scholarship examination and successful interview.

All candidates for Year 7 2023 scholarships must sit the Academic Assessment Services examination on Sunday 27 February 2021 (previously 29 August 2021).

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