RADLEY COLLEGE -
GREATER CHINA SCHOLARSHIP
The next scholar might be you!
Radley College* is one of the UK’s leading and prestigious independent boarding schools. In recent years, Radley has been offering The Greater China Scholarship (GCS), to a boy from Hong Kong who would otherwise be unable to afford independent education to attend Radley for 5 years of education.
With a similar mission related to the education landscape for the under-resourced students in Hong Kong, ARCH Community Outreach (ACO) is honoured to be the appointed partner of the GCS. We continue to work closely with Radley College to identify candidates, provide support for their preparation for assessment and oversee a testing and interview process before the Warden visits Hong Kong to interview the final round candidates.
"Working with Arch Community Outreach guarantees several things. Professional understanding of the education market, a wholehearted commitment to the aims of a project, a genuine interest in the welfare of the students and thoroughly reliable administration and efficiency throughout. We recommend ACO very highly."
Mr. John Moule, Warden
