Wesley’s substantial scholarship provision provides opportunities for talented students who are enthusiastic to learn and reach their full potential.  

Each year, a wide range of scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate not only academic excellence but also achievement in one or more of sport, music, performance, visual art, community service and leadership.

Wesley scholarships are offered on merit. The number and value of scholarships allocated is determined by the quality of applicants and the availability of places. Typically, scholarships are awarded as 50 per cent reduction in tuition fees for the duration of the student’s time at the College.
