Applications now open for Go Forward Scholarships

23 Mar 2016

 Applications are now invited for the Go Forward Scholarships, for entry in Years 8-11 only).  Applications close at 2.00pm on Wednesday 6 April, 2016.

Guildford Grammar School’s purpose is “Inspiring students to achieve personal excellence and to be outstanding citizens who work to create a just, peaceful and loving society”.

The School has a proud history of providing educational opportunities for a broad range of students who would not normally have the means to attend the School, which is directly linked to our purpose, our Anglican ethos and egalitarian outlook.

The School Council has endorsed with enthusiasm the establishment of the “Go Forward Foundation Educational Scholarship Trust”, which is a Deductible Gift Trust that acts as a vehicle to enable students to enrol at the School from Years 8 to 11 and experience the full range of opportunities that a Guildford Grammar School education can provide.

A limited number of Go Forward Scholarships are available to boys entering Years 8 to 11 in 2017, who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend Guildford Grammar School and who display outstanding characteristics across a broad range of areas including high academic achievement.  The successful applicant will be a student who has displayed qualities of excellence, respect, service, leadership and commitment within their school and wider community.  The Go Forward Scholarships are not open to boys who are currently attending Guildford Grammar School.

Boys will not be required to sit an entrance examination but the scholarship will be awarded by the Headmaster based on a boy’s comprehensive application, portfolio and personal interview.  The Scholarship will provide a reduction in the level of tuition fee and boarding fee (if applicable) payable as determined by the Headmaster after consideration of the applicant family’s ability to contribute to the cost of tuition and boarding fees.  The Scholarship will be awarded for the period until the boy graduates from Guildford Grammar School.  The continuance of the Scholarship will be subject to annual review to ensure that the recipient is maintaining satisfactory progress.
