Gippsland Grammar is an Anglican co-educational day and boarding school catering for the needs of children from 3 years of age to Year 12. We offer a broad academic education, a wide co-curricular program and have achieved outstanding success in the VCE years.

 

Gippsland Grammar offers a number of scholarships in different categories, providing part remission for tuition fees.

 

All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal and are subject to an annual review. The year levels offered and number of scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the quality of the applicants and the availability of places.

 

Registrations will open in November 2019 for Academic, General Excellence and Music Scholarships for entry into Years 5 to 11, 2021.
