Music Scholarships

Redhill School is pleased to offer a limited number of Music Scholarships to current, as well as prospective, students entering the High School in Grade 8, 9 or 10.  Scholarships are awarded on the condition that the recipient will at all times honour the Vision, Mission Statement and Values of the School.

Recipients of a Music Scholarship are further expected to contribute, as and when needed, to cultural activities undertaken by the School. They will also be required to continue (both studying and performing) music for the duration of the Scholarship. It is expected that successful candidates participate in the wide range of opportunities available at the School.

Scholarships may be granted to those applicants who demonstrate outstanding performance ability by meeting the following criteria (required from ALL applicants):


The applicant’s standard of performance must be at or above (UNISA/ABRSM/Trinity):

  • Gr 3 in their Grade 7 year
  • Gr 4 in their Grade 8 year
  • Gr 5 in their Grade 9 year
  • Gr 6 in their Grade 10 year


  • The applicant must display the potential to act as a positive role model to fellow students and in all musical programs
  • The applicant must supply evidence of current (within the past two years) in-school and out of school musical achievements as well as consistent ensemble
  • Please list all achievements and upload documentary evidence. For example a photocopy of certificates, citations and medals
  • Applicants will be required to perform an audition.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to an audition and will be invited to attend an interview with the Executive Head, Head of High School and the Director of Visual and Performing Arts. However, attending such an interview does not constitute an offer of a scholarship.

The decisions of the Scholarship Committee in awarding the scholarships will be final and no correspondence will be entered into in this regard.

2019 Scholarship applications are now closed.
