We are delighted to share the news that BEK Secondary student Jimin has been awarded a King’s Scholarship to Eton College. The King’s Scholarship is an historic academic award, and probably the most competitive school scholarship in the world.

Other recent international scholarships also went to Jia, who has been awarded both Academic and Music scholarships to one of the UK’s Top Girls boarding schools, Downe House, and Izzat for his scholarship to the Bard Academy in New York. 
They should all be very proud, as are all our excellent BEK teachers, and the Music Academy team. It is worth noting that both Jia and Jimin started with BEK at our Bundang Pre-Prep before progressing through Prep and finally onto us at Secondary.  
All are fantastic examples of building on solid foundations, and a well-rounded education that has prepared them not just academically, but also for the rigorous interview processes involved. Working in close partnership with school, family, and students is the key to each successful educational journey. The British Ambassador to Korea, Mr. Colin Crooks was so impressed that he asked to meet Jia and Jimin to congratulate them personally.
