About the Hornby Trust

350+ English teaching scholarships since 1970

Celebrating the Trust's 50th anniversary

  Since the Trust was founded, more than 50 years ago, our work has focused on five areas:

  1. Funding scholarships recommended by the British Council for English language teachers and teacher trainers from countries
  around the world. Our current focus is on Central Asia, East and South Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

  2. Through the British Council, the Trust maintains an alumni network and supports follow-up projects.

  3. Funding British Council national or regional schools and workshops for English language teachers around the world.

  4. Supporting the English language teaching components of overseas education projects run by major aid organisations, such as
  Voluntary Service Overseas (VS0) and Comic Relief.

  5. Encouraging online networking between teachers and teacher organisations worldwide.

The A S Hornby Educational Trust supports the teaching of English as a foreign language.

We do this primarily by awarding scholarships through the British Council to English
language teachers from developing countries and countries in transition.

In particular, we focus on supporting key English language specialists, such as senior
teachers, teacher-trainers, inspectors and materials writers. The grants we currently offer
through the British Council enable them to come to the UK for an academic year and study
the English language and teaching theory and practice. Graduates are then encouraged to
use this knowledge to advance the teaching of English in their home countries.
