Scholarships & Awards

Scholarships & Awards

At Saint Felix School, we are looking for students who demonstrate a great curiosity and a desire to learn. Scholarship is not just about raw academic, creative, artistic, or sporting ability; it is also about a constant sense of restlessness and a desire to continue to improve wholeheartedly in their chosen field of specialism. While achieving a scholarship should be applauded and enjoyed, it is just the start of a journey; we develop and deepen their passions and interests, moving them towards greater mastery of their chosen areas.

Potential scholarship candidates will receive an invitation to spend the day at Saint Felix School, providing an opportunity for a full tour. If a candidate would like to stay overnight, please let us know.

Potentially, a bursary could supplement a scholarship or award based on means testing conducted by an external agency.
