LONDON SCHOOLBOY Joshua Adeyemi has been offered a £70,000 scholarship to Eton College, the same school attended by Prince William and Prince Harry.

Selected out of hundreds of A* applicants, Joshua persevered through no less than three tests and six interviews before receiving news of his success.

He told Southwark News: “I was ecstatic to say the least. […] It’s funny because it all just happened so fast.

“My mum was just thanking God and was jumping for joy”.

Currently attending Ark Globe Academy in Elephant & Castle, the 16-year-old found out about the scholarship after seeing local boy Ahmed Roble take it home, last year.

“Seeing that Ahmed got into Eton after going to a school like mine made me realise it was possible.”

Providing Joshua achieves a minimum of 6 As and a grade B in English Language, he will head to Eton College for sixth form to study biology, geography, economics and politics. The youngster is also considering maths as a fifth A level.
