For more information, please contact the Admissions Office on +618 8404 0400 or admissions@stpeters.sa.edu.au.

General Excellence Scholarship

The General Excellence Scholarship is available to a boy wishing to enter Year 10 or 11 as a day or boarding student, and will cover up to 100% tuition fees. The scholarship is available to new students only.

Applicants should possess sound all-round qualities including academic, demonstrated service and citizenship, involvement in co-curricular activities (music, drama, sport, etc) and be diligent and positive contributors to their current school community.

The scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding student who would be unable to attend St Peter’s College without significant financial support. As such, applicants will be required to sit an ACER exam and provide evidence of their achievements in sport, music/the arts, co-curricular activities and community service. The scholarship will also be means-tested.

The scholarship has been made possible by a group of committed, enlightened individuals including old scholars, current and past parents. Having experienced the value of a Saints education first hand, they have come together to provide the necessary philanthropic support that will enable someone else to benefit from a Saints education.

Evans Family Bursary

The Evans Family Bursary has been generously funded by Michael Evans (FLL ‘59), a long-standing, dedicated and respected member of the Saints community. At the age of six, Michael contracted polio and being unable to participate in sport, he made his contribution by time keeping for the First XVIII football. Michael became a long-standing, dedicated and respected member of Saints staff, retiring at the end of 1999 after 37 years of service to the School, the last 23 years of which were as School Secretary and Bursar. His retirement marked the end of 100 years of continuous service by the Evans family as School Secretary and Bursar with both Michael’s father LAR Evans, serving in that capacity (1946–1977) and grandfather, AEH Evans (1899–1946).

The new bursary will provide up to $5,000 remission of tuition fees and will be awarded for up to three years (but can be extended by application). The Evans Family Bursary is available to new and current students in Years 7 to 12.

Applicants should possess sound all-round qualities including academic, demonstrated service and citizenship, involvement in co-curricular activities (music, drama, sport etc) and be diligent and positive contributors to their current school community.

In light of Mr Evans’ formative experiences, priority will be given to applicants who have shown strong determination, resilience and/or a positive attitude in overcoming, or in continuing to address, a significant personal challenge.
