Life changing opportunities

Discover how a Walford scholarship can play a pivotal role in encouraging your daughter to be, become, do and achieve her best, her way.

Each year, Walford is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships that promote academic excellence, foster diversity, recognise students for their individual strengths and talents, and alleviate financial barriers to a Walford education.

Our scholarship offerings allow our students to embrace opportunities and benefit from a personalised learning journey, while coming together in the heart of our school community to share in our values and to live our School motto Virtute et Veritate: Moral Courage and Truth.

The following scholarships were offered for commencement in 2025.

Frances Adamson Scholarship

The Frances Adamson Scholarship is named after the 36th Governor of South Australia and one of our most eminent old scholars, Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC. Her Excellency is a strong advocate for education as the gateway to a student achieving not only her best but also being able to contribute to the world, in her own way.

The Thomas and Gwenyth (Bonnar) Gepp Bursary

The Thomas and Gwenyth (Bonnar) Gepp Bursary is named in honour of Mrs Gwenyth Gepp (nee Bonnar), who graduated from Walford in 1939, before later returning as a sports mistress in the mid-1940s. Mrs Gepp predeceased her husband, Thomas, and, following his passing in early 2018, we learnt that together they had decided to generously bequeath a gift to the School to be used for a descendant of a Walford old scholar or boarding student who may not otherwise have the means to attend Walford Anglican School for Girls and for certain other purposes.
