Bursaries

The Bursary program has been designed to recognise, encourage, and support talented individuals pursuing an education in the performing arts.

APGS offers a number of bursaries that provide all or part remission of tuition fees. Bursaries do not cover textbooks, uniforms, excursions, performance fees, technology fees or private tuition fees.

Bursary assistance on tuition fees may be available to parents who would like to provide their children with an APGS School education but find the costs of full fees financially prohibitive. 

Assistance is provided for a maximum of one year and if further assistance is required, a new application form must be submitted.  If you are planning on sending your children to APGS but are concerned that it may be financially difficult, we encourage you to contact as to see if you qualify for bursary assistance. 

It is an expectation that all bursary recipients maintain appropriate academic standards and uphold and respect the Conditions of Enrolment of the school. Bursary recipients are expected to be actively involved in the school community, and represent the school in activities as required.
