School fees alone do not provide capital to continue building the school. It is the generosity of previous generations that mean the students of today can benefit from the wonderful facilities and opportunities at Shore.

Since the first days of Shore, it has been the support of Benefactors and Friends who have enabled Shore to provide a standard of education of the highest standard. In fact the school property at North Sydney was purchased in 1889, for 10,000 pounds, with funds that had been originally provided by a bequest. (Ref ‘Shore’ by Geoffrey Sherrington, pg 23, Ref 76).

 We encourage you to partner with us, whatever your capacity, and leave a legacy to benefit the young men of today and tomorrow.

“They hand on the Torch of Life”

Rural Bursaries

 Rural Bursaries


Shore has a close relationship with our Country Boarding families, some who are second and third generation Shore boys.  The  Rural Bursaries assist those families who otherwise might not be able to send their sons to the school.  We encourage you to donate generously to the Shore Foundation Scholarships Trust.
