"Scholarship students have the opportunity to grow their unique talents in a supported environment, while at the same time they can make a significant contribution to the St Andrew's academic, sporting and cultural landscape."
Christine Leighton, Rector
With funding from the St Andrew’s College Foundation we are proud to offer a diverse scholarship programme which provides wonderful opportunities for students with exceptional academic, music or sporting abilities, many of whom may not have otherwise attended the College. St Andrew’s is renowned for its top class facilities, dedicated teaching staff, and a diverse academic and co-curricular programme, which supports Scholarship students to develop special talents to their full potential.
Academic scholars enjoy a rich and balanced academic programme that includes the Academic Extension and Enrichment programme for gifted and talented students. Young musicians work with top class teachers in a state-of-the-art music suite and can participate in up to 25 classical and contemporary music groups. High achieving sportspeople are also well catered for with impressive indoor and outdoor facilities, and support from a group of dedicated coaches including many former international sportspeople.
St Andrew’s offers Academic Scholarships for up to two Year 7 students and up to five Year 9 students; a range of Sporting and Cultural Scholarships for students from Years 7–13; the George Feilding Hight Scholarships for young men and women from rural communities of the South Island; an Endeavour Scholarship which is a needs based scholarship selected on academic and all round potential; and various Government Bursaries, which assist with students’ study costs.
Scholarships are also available for the College’s exceptional, national title holding pipe band.
