Each year Pittwater House offers a limited number of scholarships to students for outstanding academic potential and general excellence in sport and performing arts (music/dance/drama).
These scholarships are open to existing students and new students entering Years 7, 9 and 11.
Scholarship applications are accepted between late September and early February for commencement the following school year. All applicants are required to complete the ACER exam and following that, short-listed students are invited to interview (and audition if applicable) and then scholarships are offered during Term 2 the year prior to commencement.
