Scholarships

Scholarship applications for entry into 2024 are now closed.

Applications for 2025 scholarships will open in July 2023.

At Tintern Grammar we are proud to offer Scholarship opportunities to support attendance at our School by young people who might otherwise not have the option to attend Tintern. A Scholarship to Tintern opens up diverse and challenging opportunities for the holder and provides breadth and depth to their education and also carries with it a duty to contribute and lead within the Tintern community.

Our Scholarship holders bring an enormous amount to our community. This can be in academic leadership, in social justice and service, in broader leadership, and in their role modelling of strong character, their appetite for learning and improvement, and their respect, care and kindness towards others.

We welcome applications for our 2025 scholarships from young women and men who share the aspiration to develop and amplify these important elements of personal and community character.  Please visit this website in July 2023 to apply.

The Henry and Jean Speagle Scholarship

Henry Speagle joined the Tintern Community some 60 years ago when he was appointed to the School Council by the Archbishop-In-Council. He remained a member of the School Council for nearly 40 years; in the final years of his term he was the Deputy Chairman.  Among many contributions, his skill as an historian was put to good use in supporting the production of the School’s centenary history in 1977. Jean stood by Henry’s side on many occasions, supporting and enjoying many formal and celebratory events and activities, particularly those with a musical flavour. In 2001 Henry was inducted as a Life Governor of the School and in further recognition, in 1991, the Science block of classrooms was named in his honour, recognising his enormous contribution to the strength and development of Tintern Grammar. In 2019 the Speagle family was honoured when the building was refurbished and renamed as the Speagle Science Centre. Now in her 95th year, Jean continues to enjoy her connection to the Tintern Community and even though unable to attend in person, keeps up to date with the happenings around the school.

The Henry and Jean Speagle Scholarship has been pledged to the school by Henry and Jean and their son. Following Henry’s death in 2020, the Speagle family made an initial gift to the Scholarship Fund. The family will continue to build the corpus for the Scholarship (including through a bequest) until a 50% Scholarship can be awarded in perpetuity to suitable recipients.

Applicants must meet all or most of the criteria to be considered for the scholarship.

The conditions are:

  • A female student who does not currently attend Tintern Grammar
  • From a family who for financial reasons could not otherwise afford the benefit of a Tintern education
  • A family (or student) who has an affiliation and is a practising member of a recognised Christian denomination, preferably Anglican.

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of the student’s application as well as the results from an independent academic examination, school reports and NAPLAN results, along with an interview with a senior member of staff and meeting the above criteria. This scholarship is aimed at those who would not normally have the financial means to attend Tintern Grammar and is means tested. Shortlisted candidates will be required to provide financial disclosure upon request.
