Tudor House Scholarships

An amazing 30 awards have been made available at Tudor House School for 2013 and beyond, thanks to the generosity of a benefactor who strongly supports the holistic education and unique offerings at the school.

Following recent media activity on the benefits of boys-only education and the importance of allowing diversity in the education landscape with Tudor House Headmaster, John Stewart, the school was approached by the benefactor, who wishes to remain anonymous, offering students from near and far the opportunity to explore their true potential and experience the wonders of the iconic boys-only primary school.

Mr Stewart was astounded at the generosity and philanthropy of the benefactor.

"I am humbled. For so long I have been vocal in the benefits we offer boys – our boys go on to be leaders in the Australian community. We had Malcolm Fraser return to join us a fortnight ago; he was an Old Tudorian. Ed Cowan contacted our Deputy after he scored his first international century; he is an Old Tudorian, too! This generous donation just opens our doors, providing the opportunity for more boys. Our whole community will benefit because that is the power of a quality education. We are preparing and nurturing the minds of future leaders," said Mr Stewart.

The 30 new awards at the school are available for both day and boarding students.

“Recipients of the scholarship will be selected based on their potential, their academic aptitude and the demonstration of abilities in other particular fields of school life, such as sport, music, drama or art relevant to the School’s educational offering,” added Mr Stewart.
