Scholarship opportunity

Scholarships at Beaconhills support dedicated and talented students to help them build on their academic, performing arts and leadership strengths.

Creese Scholarship

The generosity of one of  Beaconhills College’s founding families has enabled the school to offer a new 2024 Senior School scholarship.

The Creese Scholarship is an exciting opportunity to join the College’s Pakenham Campus as a new student from Year 10, 2024. 

We invite applications from deserving students who cannot access a Beaconhills education. The scholarship covers full tuition costs for Years 10 to 12, along with uniform expenses.

Beaconhills recognises dedicated and talented students through this scholarship, helping them build on their strengths and make a positive contribution to our community.
