Hale School Foundation Academic Scholarships
(up to the value of 50% remission of local day fees) are available for boys entering Year 7 in 2018. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of secondary schooling, subject to satisfactory performance and progress. The application fees for these scholarships vary from $110 to $300 depending on whether the applicant is sitting the exam in Perth or elsewhere.
The Hale School Foundation Brian Clarkson Rural Scholarship is named in honour of Brian Clarkson, a dearly loved teacher and well respected Head of Boarding who passed away in 2011. This scholarship is available for boys currently in Year 6 wishing to enter Hale in Year 7. All applicants must come from a rural background with a current residential address in regional Western Australia. As this is a rural scholarship, applicants will be competing with other rural candidates only. The scholarship will be up to 50% remission of tuition fees and is awarded for the duration of secondary schooling, subject to satisfactory performance and progress. The successful candidate will be expected to attend an interview with the Headmaster prior to the scholarship being awarded. Applicants may sit the examination either at Hale School or remotely. 
The Lister Drake Scholarship (funded by the Old Haleians’ Association) is designed for students currently in Year 10 who are sons or grandsons of Old Haleians. Please note that applicants do not currently have to be attending Hale School. All eligible students are encouraged to apply. The Old Haleians' Association has always played an important role in contributing to the aims and welfare of Hale School and its students. The scholarship is for Years 11 and 12 to the value of 25% tuition fees. The awarding of the Lister Drake Scholarship will be determined by the completion of an application form, results of an internally set academic examination and an interview. Boys will be shortlisted for an interview based on their application and the results of the examination. The awarding of this honour is publicly acknowledged.

For many years, the Association has also funded a bursary scheme, which provides financial assistance to boys who would enrich Hale School and our community by attending the School, but whose families could not afford the fees because of their circumstances. These bursaries are given on a confidential basis. Many outstanding boys have attended Hale as a result of this opportunity.

Students entering Years 7 to Year 11 are invited to apply for Hale School Foundation Music Scholarships at Hale School. These are designed to encourage and nurture talented young musicians. It is expected that all Scholarship holders will work hard and show leadership throughout their active involvement in Hale Music whilst becoming part of a dynamic and exciting music programme.
