Vinehall welcomes applications for children entering Years 4-7 who are gifted in Academic, Sport, Art, Music and Drama/Performing Arts.

Scholarship candidates are assessed in their chosen area by means of a practical assessment with the relevant school department.  All candidates are also required to complete written papers, comprising verbal reasoning, maths, reading (comprehension) and creative writing. For those applying for a scholarship in sport, art, music and drama/performing arts, these written papers are required to assess the level of a candidate against other children in the appropriate school year. They are not used as the deciding factor when Scholarships are offered.

Scholarships are non means-tested and are worth 10% of the basic school fees. In addition to this award the school have a dedicated means-tested bursary support that can be used to supplement scholarships.
