Opportunity to Thrive Scholarships – Additional Information

External students who will be Year 10 in 2025 are invited to apply for an Opportunity to Thrive Scholarship.

The overriding purpose of student scholarships at The King David School is to provide access to exceptional learning opportunities for students who share the values of our School community. All Scholarship students are highly committed to giving their personal best, and in doing so, act as positive role models for their peers, our School community, and more broadly.

Whilst the Scholarship is not necessarily dependent on excellence in any particular field, an enthusiastic attitude to academic pursuits, would be expected.

Are you eligible to apply?

Selection will take into account:

  • completion of Edutest testing (a link will be provided to you once you have completed The King David School online registration). $100 Edutest registration fee applies
  • completion of KDS application and submitted requested documents
  • review of school reports
  • interview with our Principal.

Opportunity to Thrive Scholarships cover a percentage of the tuition fees and do not cover:

  • the cost of books, stationery or uniforms
  • discretionary charges such as overseas trips
  • security charges
  • associated charges
Special Conditions

Opportunity to Thrive Scholarship recipients are expected to:

  • maintain a high standard of academic achievement
  • contribute positively and enthusiastically to School life

Progress and contribution to School life is reviewed annually. A Scholarship may be withdrawn if the Principal is not satisfied with the diligence or conduct of the recipient. Failure to pay fees may also lead to withdrawal.

All applicants must submit an online Scholarship application made directly to The King David School as well as an application directly to Edutest. 

Once the Admissions Department has received your application, you will be invited to attend an interview with our Principal, Marc Light.
