Bellevue college launches scholarship in honour of former principal


Bellevue group member Ealing Independent College has launched a scholarship in honour of its former principal, Dr Ian Moores, who served in the role for 18 years.

The Dr Ian Moores Scholarship Competition provides the opportunity for students to win a fully funded place at the College for the duration of an A Level or GCSE course.

Dr Moores, who served as Principal of Ealing Independent College for 18 years, retired in summer 2020. He oversaw the growth and expansion of the college from a small tutorial college to an all-encompassing school for students from year 9 to year 13.

Dr Moores taught at some of the UK’s most prestigious HMC boarding and day schools. He was Head of Department and Master in Charge of Athletics at Wellington College (Berks) for five years. He then moved to Bedales School (Hants) as Head of Science for another five years, before an appointment to the Senior Management Team at Cheadle Hulme School (Cheshire).

Current Principal, Allan Cairns, comments: ‘Dr Moores truly managed to integrate the best aspects of an Independent Sixth Form College with the best characteristics of a school to give the College its particular ethos. The diverse and welcoming environment is a key part of his legacy here.’

The first stage of the Dr Ian Moores Scholarship Competition will be held virtually on 17 November.

Ealing Independent College welcomes students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). If applicants can provide evidence that they currently receive extra time for tests and exams, the College can give extra time to complete the scholarship paper.
