How to apply for a scholarship at Essington?

The Essington School utilises ACER Scholarship Tests, which are used across Australia to identify academically able students for the awarding of a scholarship. The tests are designed to rank applicants, finely differentiating the top end of performance.

Applicants are required to demonstrate a range of skills such as the ability to interpret, infer, deduce and think critically. The tests are not curriculum based and do not test the ability to retrieve learned knowledge, nor are they diagnostic. Students who achieve very highly in relation to the Australian cohort will be shortlisted for interview. 

Currently the 2022 Scholarship positions have already been filled. Scholarship information for 2023 applicants will be available shortly. 

2023 Scholarship Testing available at Essington

Current and external students who are studying in Years 6 to 11 in 2022 are eligible to apply for a scholarship in 2023.

The test will be held at The Essington School on the morning of Saturday 26 February 2022. The closing date for applications is 7 February 2022.
