High School Bursary Opportunities

Starting 2022, SPA offers 10 bursaries covering tuition (fees) only to well-rounded, academically strong candidates in grades 10-12. Preference is given to those who are previously disadvantaged.

Half Bursaries (5 each year)

Half bursaries are awarded to any learner based purely on academic excellence. The child must have scored a minimum of 75% average in all subjects. New learners applying for bursaries from other schools will be subject to a written interview in mathematics/ mathematical literacy and English Language. Half bursaries exclude registration fees and are limited to tuition fees for each year of study.

Full Bursaries (5 each year)

These are based on both academic achievement and financial need. Full bursaries cover both registration and tuition fees for each term of study as well as academic support and mentoring. The bursary does not cover scholastic materials and uniforms.
