Ficino School offers several scholarships for children wishing to enter Ficino School at Years 7-8.

The value of each Scholarship is a proportion of the tuition fee, between 25% and 50%, depending on financial need, and is usually for two years. The tenure of the Scholarship is closely monitored, with a full review at the end of each academic year. The basic school uniform will also be supplied in the first year. Some other costs, such as school trips and lunches, will still apply.


Scholarships are awarded to motivated students who display:

  • strong academic performance
  • promise or interest in a cultural, sporting or other area, or
  • citizenship, community spirit, or leadership ability
