Relationship with The Scots College
The Scots College has maintained a special relationship with Coogee Boy's Prep over many years and has welcomed a significant number of Coogee Boy's Prep to our Year 7 group in past years. Through this relationship, boys commencing in Year 4 and exiting Year 6 at Coogee Boy's Prep and who have made Application to Scots are given a priority listing on our Year 7 Enrolment Registers. It is important to note that entry is not automatic or guaranteed and whilst the College will do all it can to accommodate enrolment requests, it is unable to guarantee the availability of a place to any student.
The College Council requires parents, including those from Coogee Boy's Prep, to pay a non-refundable Entrance Fee ($5,000 for 2017 entry) to secure a Year 7 position. Please note the non-refundable Entrance Fee is not credited to your son's Term One Fees. The request for payment is made at the time of offer, following the pre enrolment assessment and interview when the student is in Year 5. Places cannot be held without payment of the Entrance Fee by the nominated date. Please see the Scots website www.tsc.nsw.edu.au for The Scots College Deferral and Withdrawal Policy in the event an offered position is declined.
In addition to the above arrangements, the best performed Coogee Boy's Prep student in The Scots College scholarship examination, may be considered for a scholarship, provided his results fall within the top 2% of an age equivalent standard. All scholarship offers are subject to the results of an interview process. Should no Coogee Boy's Prep student attain results within the cut off range, a scholarship may not be awarded, however, some form of financial assistance may be considered by way of a leadership scholarship at the College's discretion. Should you wish your son to be considered for entry to The Scots College, please ensure an Application for Enrolment form is submitted as soon as possible before the end of Year 4. The form may be downloaded from the College website or you are welcome to contact the Admissions Office at Scots on (02) 9391 7668 if you would like to discuss any aspect of your son's enrolment.
