ENTRANCE/ SCHOLARSHIP EXAMINATION 

The Grade 8 Entrance Examination consists of three papers:

The Examinations are skills rather than content based and predominantly take into consideration the work covered in Grade 6.

A limited number of Academic, Cultural and Sporting Scholarships are awarded.
Epworth awards:

  • A number of minor scholarships.

These scholarships are tenable for five years provided academic, sporting or cultural standards are maintained.
