Creating the educational opportunity of a lifetime
‘Eastside’s Scholars’ represents an exciting and far-reaching development from Eastside Young Leaders’ Academy. This new programme builds on our track record of achieving extraordinary results in turning around the educational performance of black boys over the last decade.
The programme is designed to access the country’s top boarding Schools (and some independent day schools) to a generation of boys who have the talent but lack opportunity, support structure and finance.
Our mission is to identify academically able boys, and give them the preparation and support to succeed at the entrance examination, and thereafter through their experience as a boarder at a leading school. As importantly, we work with the parents and families of participating boys, to help them understand and engage with both the
preparation phase and the experience of boarding following exam success.
How we work and who can apply
curriculum, designed for boys, towards entrance exams. These are run after school, on Saturdays and during school holidays. Children can start from Year 5 through to year 10 depending on the academic year of entrance i.e. Year 7, 9 or 12. The preparation process will also include visits to schools.
What about girls?
