LaPine added �The selected pupil will join our school, which already includes local students within our diverse international community. This scholarship represents a wonderful opportunity for one young person�

Closing date for applications for the 2014/2015 academic year is the 28th March 2014.

Aimed at candidates who have an ambition to attend a good university, participants must currently attend a local UK state school, demonstrate a willingness to participate in community service or extra curricular activities.

Candidates can receive an application pack either by emailing scholarship@acs-schools.com or by calling Rudianne Soltis, Dean of Admissions, on 01895 818402 for further information.

More information about the application process can also be found on the website www.acs-schools.com/acs-hillingdon/scholarship.

The ACS Foundation has launched its IB Diploma Scholarship for an academically outstanding student, who is expected to achieve at least five Grade As at GCSE, and wishes to further their academic success and broaden their horizons.

The IB Diploma programme is an internationally renowned entrance qualification to universities in the UK, Europe and around the world. In the University Admission Officers Report 2013, twice as many UK university admissions officers cited the IB Diploma over A-Levels, as the best preparation for students to thrive at university.

To earn an IB Diploma students are required to study six subjects: a literature course in the student�s native language, one additional language, maths, experimental sciences, social sciences, and one arts or another subject from science, humanities or languages.

The IB develops students who are enquiring, knowledge and caring young people through a raft of extra-curricular activities including Theory of Knowledge classes, a 4000 word extended essay and the Creativity, Action and Service work.
