World Scholars Cup Success

We are delighted to inform parents that two of our World Scholar’s Cup teams, who competed in the Global Round of this prestigious academic competition in July, against some of the very best teenage minds on the planet, have qualified for the stellar Tournament of Champions at Yale University in November 2014. Not only is this without precedent for our school, it also proves our status among the very best international schools in the region. We are sure the whole school community will offer our ‘scholars’ their full support as they prepare for this final challenge. As for this academic year, we hope to expand the programme further, so please ask your children to think about whether they would like to follow in these footsteps.
