Scholarships

Offering opportunities in excellent education

Haileybury Rendall School is committed to providing high quality education for children of diverse backgrounds and abilities. However, we recognise that there are many people for whom private education may be out of reach.

This is why we offer a select number of scholarships that celebrate aspiration and achievement. This provides young people who might otherwise not have the option to attend Haileybury Rendall School to reach their full potential whilst enjoying our extensive education and co-curricular programs.

Our scholarships are aimed at broadening access to the outstanding education available at our School.
