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.


Hale School offers the following scholarships:

Hale School Foundation Academic Scholarships are available for boys who will be entering Year 7 in 2025. Any boy who is in Year 6 in 2024 is eligible to apply regardless of the school he currently attends.
