2020 Fee Realignment
Commencing Term 1 in 2020, Scone Grammar School fees will be realigned to serve a wider community. The growth of our school, due to our Positive, Flourishing Learning Community, has enabled us to realign our fee levels.
As an overall annual average across the school, tuition fees will reduce by 18%. The reduction in annual tuition fees for Years 11 & 12 is less, due to the varied resources required to support these years.
We have researched parents of preschool students, families ready to transition from Year 6 to Secondary, along with targeted conversations and interviews with many families within the wider community, to understand an affordable fee level. Please click on our 2020 Fee Realignment Q&A Summary for more detail.
The School year is divided into four terms beginning in January, April, July and October each year. Tuition Fees are charged at the commencement of each term except for Year 12 fees which are paid over the first three terms. Payment term is 30 Days from Statement month end. Annual Tuition fees may be paid in full at the commencement of the School Year. This attracts a discount of 5% from the net annual tuition fee if full payment is received by the last day of February. No discount is given on the Resource Activity Levy.
|School Year - 2019||Annual Payment||Payment by Term|
|Year 12||$7,100||$2,367 x 3 terms|
|School Year - 2020||Annual Payment||Payment by Term|
|Year 12||$6,700||$2,234 x 3 terms|
(Note: Elective Distance Education / Vocational Education subjects may incur additional charge.)
