Twelve of Britain’s Boarding Schools have formed a new Federation aimed at recruiting international students for British Boarding Schools and Universities. The federation has been created and is managed by Anglo Schools International Services – ASIS.”
The aim of the Federation is to offer senior school places to those students who want a better guarantee of entry into university at the end of their senior school studies. ASIS is looking forward to attracting children aged 11, 13 and 16 years to be educated in Britain so that they can progress to university in Britain or the United States far more easily and certainly.
The Federation schools are providing significant financial assistance in the form of Scholarships and will be conducting a series of entrance tests in India to select the successful candidates. The schools will also be offering fee-paying places to some pupils who may not qualify for their financial assistance.
The federation is headed by David Boddy, Principal, ASIS. Formerly, he was the headmaster of the prestigious St James Senior Boys School in London and last year’s Chairman of the UK Society of Headteachers.
ASIS will launch a website in India in late November and candidates for the scholarships will be invited to sit entrance tests in English, Maths and General Knowledge. The tests will take place in 17 locations across India. Each applicant will be charged £250, payable by credit card off the website at the time of registration. ASIS will also be offering pastoral care and travel services to the successful candidates.
The total value of the scholarships is expected to be worth in excess of Rs 2 Crore. The details of the schools taking part and the scholarship values will be announced in late November.
