We are committed to helping children from all backgrounds have access to an outstanding education.
The Amity Scholarship and Bursary fund, launched in September 2017, not only helps celebrate and promote achievement and ambition, but also help students with limited financial means benefit from an AIS education.
Who will qualify?
Scholarships are awarded for achievement and potential either in a specific or a combination of fields. Awards are given on an entirely meritocratic basis. Although a student may not meet the criteria at one scholarship entry point, this will not exclude him/her from an application in a later year. In September 2019, scholarships have been offered for students entering Year 7, 8, 9 and 10. Music scholarships might be offered to exceptional candidate in Year 5 and Year 6.
What do we expect from our scholars?
Scholars should be leaders to their peers and work with staff to grow the co-curricular programmes. Scholars are expected to achieve recognition for themselves and help the community achieve the same by being a role model inside and outside of the classroom. Holders of this award are expected to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities. These include subject-specific clubs and societies, as well as internal and external academic competitions.
Opportunity for success
Scholars will be presented with exciting opportunities and challenges. Our academic curriculum and co-curriculum is structured to provide breadth, challenge and extension beyond standard British National requirements. We provide excellent resources, specialist subject teaching and take great care to monitor academic progress.
How is success measured?
We measure success in terms of exam results and the number of students attending Oxbridge, Russell Group or Ivy-league universities. Our programme will give students confidence in new challenges, resilience and help them to easily adapt to change, as well as be creative and visionary leaders.
How are awards decided?
Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the student’s time in the school. However, all Scholarships and Bursaries may be withdrawn if we find that the student is not meeting scholarship expectations.
