Eden Schools offers a limited number of academic and merit scholarships to incoming students each year. Learners with exceptional academic ability or those that have achieved recognition in the arts or sport may apply for a bursary or scholarship at the school.

Academic Scholarships

There is a special application process, which includes annual Scholarship Examinations. Award decisions are based on the results of these English and Mathematics Scholarship examinations as well as Admission Applications. Where required, an interview may also form part of the process.

The main scholarship examinations are written by pupils in Grades 7 and 9 for admission to Grades 8 and 10 of the following year, however, truly exceptional students in other high school grades are invited to submit a CV and a full academic record with the special application process for consideration.

Cultural Scholarships

On occasion, a gifted pupil who is truly exceptional in one or more fields may apply to the school. This Scholarship Examinations is written annually as well as a Cultural Evaluation thereafter. Pupils who are interested in applying for this form of scholarship should be excellent scholars with a solid academic record as well as have a rare and award-winning talent. The areas in which the school has considered previous candidates are; Art, Dance, Drama, Music and Sport. Bearing in mind that Eden Schools offers a choice of Art, Dance, Drama and Music as matriculation subjects alongside all other ‘regular’ subjects, one can understand why there continues to be a demand for this.

Certain Considerations

At Eden, unless stated otherwise in the letter awarding the scholarship, the award runs for the duration of the pupil’s tenure at the school. Please note that there are a few provisors to the continuation of the scholarship from year to year and these will be made clear when a scholarship is awarded.

Scholarship Exams registration for Grade 8, 9, 10 and 11 for the 2024 academic year now open.
