Oxford Falls Grammar School focuses on strong academic outcomes through quality, caring and nurturing teachers. We consistently perform strongly in all national testing, culminating in the Higher School Certificate (HSC). For more information on academic performance, please see our 2012 Annual Report.
In 2012, our HSC graduates achieved outstanding results, with a top ATAR score of 98.25, 80% of students obtained a Band 5 or higher in one or more courses and an overwhelming 86% of courses studied scored above the state mean.
Administered by the School’s Executive, a number of Scholarships are awarded each year to individuals who demonstrate exceptional academic merit and potential for high achievement in their appropriate stage.
The privately funded scholarships, awarded on an annual basis, afford guaranteed entry into Years 7, 9 and 11 at Oxford Falls Grammar School and cover 25% to 100% of fees for a minimum of two years and up to six years.
Scholarships for 2015 are open to all students entering Years 7, 9 and 11 in that year.
More information on Academic Scholarship testing will be made available shortly.
TERMS OF ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS FOR EXCELLENCE
- The examination is compiled by ACER (Australian Council for Education Research) and will determine if students qualify by their results being in the top 10% of the ACER tests, as shown on the Individual Report that ACER will provide for you. The scholarships may be awarded to the student with the highest overall score or to one with the highest score in a particular subject. This enables us to recognise outstanding all-round or specialised performances. Only in exceptional circumstances will applicants with results below the top 10% be considered for a scholarship. The exam will be conducted by the School under instructions from ACER. Should a child be awarded a scholarship, the academic standard achieved in the ACER exam needs to be maintained throughout the term of the scholarship. That is, their academic achievement at the end of each year should place the student in the top 10% of their classes.
- In the area of personal conduct any scholarship winner is to set an example to the School community through their conduct. It is important that attitude, diligence, attendance, participation and support for the School’s Christian ethos are maintained at an exemplary level. Should any one or more of these areas come under question the scholarship could be placed at risk.
Please understand if problems arise in either the academic or conduct areas our first objective would be to work together with the student and parents to address and rectify any concerns.
Please note further details of our terms and conditions will be provided when scholarships are offered.
