Supporting Scholarships

Hale School’s Scholarship Programme supports a culture of excellence and diversity on campus.  A robust Scholarship and Bursary Programme is necessary to attract students of academic and musical talent, as well as enabling enrolment for boys who would otherwise be unable to receive a Hale School education.

The Scholarship Programme is underpinned by financial support from the Hale School Foundation which operates together with support from generous donors across the Hale community.

Academic and music scholarships

Through the generosity of the Hale School community and our many benefactors, the Hale School Foundation offers a comprehensive scholarship programme to current and prospective students of Hale School.

Fundamentally, the aim of the programme is to allow boys who would otherwise be unable to attend Hale School an opportunity to benefit from a Hale education.

Beyond the recognition of excellence, the Hale School Foundation acknowledges that the invitation of exceptional students into our student body benefits our entire school.  To learn more or apply for a Foundation Scholarship, please click HERE.


Indigenous scholarships

Hale School has a long history of positive mutual engagement with Indigenous people – via our curriculum, our relationships with WA Indigenous communities, our Hale School Indigenous Scholarship programme, and through extensive staff learning focused on Indigenous ways of knowing and being.

The Indigenous Scholarship programme has been operating at Hale School since 1998 when the first boys were interviewed for the programme.  Since then, 119 students from across Western Australia have been enrolled at Hale.  The School maintains a close relationship with many communities and families, particularly with the Warmun Community, from where the first boys and 8 in total have come to receive a Hale School education.

Boys involved in the Indigenous Scholarship Programme receive the full support of a dedicated Co-ordinator of Indigenous Students as well as careful planning for options for study, training and work options during school and after graduation. To learn more or apply for a Hale School Foundation Indigenous Scholarship, click  HERE.

Named scholarships

In addition to scholarships directly supported by the Hale School Foundation, specific named scholarships are funded by donations from individual or collective donors to the Hale School Foundation.

Please contact us if you are interested in establishing a Hale School Scholarship, named or unnamed, which will help a new generation of boys to benefit from a Hale School education.
