Hunt is on to find ACS Egham Scholar for 2016

Published Tuesday 22nd of December 2015 10:33:32 AM

Independent international school, ACS Egham, is offering a fully funded, two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme scholarship to an academically outstanding Year 11 pupil from a local state school. Starting in the next academic year, Autumn 2016, the scholarship is worth well in excess of £40k over two years and is designed to enhance the academic success and broaden the horizons of a bright and ambitious individual. Applicants must be predicted to achieve a minimum five Grade As at GCSE, and be keen to progress to a top university. Interested pupils have until the end of January to apply. The IB Diploma programme is highly valued by universities and employers all over the world. Academically challenging, it is widely recognised as the best preparation for university, spanning a wider field of study than single subject A levels. In addition to an excellent academic experience, the scholarship will provide a rich, varied and exciting programme of activities spanning sports, music and drama. Plus, with global citizenship an integral part of school life, some overseas travel is also likely to be high on the agenda. Last summer, for example, many ACS Egham pupils raised funds and undertook volunteer work at a school in Nepal. “This scholarship is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an ambitious local pupil to fulfill their academic ambitions in one of the very best learning environments available, and forge lifelong friendships across the globe,” said Jeremy Lewis, headteacher at ACS Egham. “I strongly urge any young person looking for a challenging future and predicted to achieve excellent grades next summer to apply now for our scholarship.” Eligibility is wide with applications accepted from pupils currently studying at a local state school and with a family / household income of up to £55k pa. Following an initial written application, shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a non-committal visit to ACS Egham to meet teachers and current pupils and get the feel of the school before any formal offers or decisions are made. Full information on how to apply can be found at http://www.acs-schools.com/Academic-Scholarship-acs-egham; by requesting a non-committal information pack from scholarship@acs-schools.com; or by calling the ACS Egham Dean of Admissions, Linda Kavanagh, on 01784 430611. The closing date for applications is 29 January, 2016.
