Ellesmere College to open outpost in Asia

The college has teamed up with Matrix Global Schools

Posted by Rianna Newman | July 03, 2017 | International

Ellesmere College has formed a partnership with Matrix Global Schools to introduce a new sixth form at the school.

Matrix wants to provide a full school experience from pre-school through to A-levels, and recognises that doing so in partnership with Ellesmere College offers the best chance of providing a high-quality education.

Chief Executive of Matrix, Felix Lee, commented, “Our collaboration with Ellesmere College is in line with our ‘Learning Beyond Boundaries’ philosophy, as it will support our East meets West approach in quite a literal way. Our students at Matrix will be able to experience the rich and experiential learning methods at Ellesmere College, which will be replicated in the Ellesmere Malaysia Sixth Form programme.  

Both institutions share a deep belief that the main aim of education is to encourage every child to reach his or her full human potential. It is always the journey that matters and what they make out of the journey. It is this common belief, shared between myself and Brendan Wignall, Headmaster of Ellesmere College, that saw the fruition of this collaboration.”

The North Shropshire School received an Education Business Award last year for its commitment to sport and was awarded platinum status by Arts Council England. Income from the outpost in Asia, set to open this September will help fund new buildings, bursaries and scholarships at the original college. There will also be the opportunity of student exchanges both for short-term and long-term placements, cultural and sporting exchanges, and gap year placements for Ellesmere College UK students in Malaysia.
