Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are available to those entering Years 7, 9 and 11. These scholarships are for excellence in academics. They are awarded to students based on performance in the ACER exam and interview.

Scholarships offered at Pittwater House cover a portion of tuition fees for the secondary years until completion of Year 12.

Interviews will be arranged for shortlisted applicants only.

General Excellence Scholarships

General Excellence (GE) Scholarships are the same as Academic Scholarships but also consider broader criteria such as ability in sport or performing arts (music, dance, drama). They are awarded to students based on performance in the ACER exam, audition and an interview.

In addition to the online ACER application, a General Excellence Application Form needs to be submitted.

Student Testimonials


“Pittwater House has helped my classroom performance in a number of ways. Through its High Potential and Gifted Students program, I have been able to participate in GATEWAY8, Future Problem Solving and United Nations incursions which have challenged and strengthened my academic performance.


“At Pittwater House, I have been given many extra opportunities that I may not have had at other schools such as being part of a school musical and joining the dance teams. Pittwater House has allowed me to make my dreams come true as I’m always being challenged to be the best I can be.”


“Pittwater House has allowed me to partake in accelerated mathematics, which will allow me to complete my HSC maths while in Year 11. The School’s tight-knit community also makes it easy to access teachers for extra help and assistance.”
