Up to four Endeavour Scholarships are awarded each year to  students of Maori and/or Pasifika descent who are joining us in Year 7.    These scholarships provide support right through her school years.


Our 2018 head girl, Tiana Willis-Baker, was a proud Endeavour Scholarship recipient and embodies the spirit of the Endeavour programme. She added richness to life at St Cuthbert’s, through sharing her Samoan and Tokelauan cultural heritage and insights with the students, teachers and those who will follow in her footsteps. We also offer a number of other St Cuthbert’s scholarships.
