Birmingham Boy Bags a Place at Top Boarding School

Eleven-year-old Amay Churasia is already considering taking up the role of Prime Minister after being awarded two prestigious scholarships at top English schools.


The Year 6 pupil from Grove Vale Primary School in Great Barr has been honoured with the Maclaren Scholarship to Summer Fields School in Oxford as well as a coveted place in Eton College which boasts alumni such David Cameron, as well as royals Prince William and Prince Harry.

“I’m leaning towards politics,” says Amay. “I wouldn’t mind being Prime Minister one day, that would be nice.

43-year-old Ajaykumar Chaurasia, proud father of Amay adds: “I’m a very middle class man who came to this country from India to give my children a better education and a better life.

“Amay has proved that if you’re passionate about something, and have determination and dedication, then no-one can stop you from achieving your goals.”

Amay’s dream of becoming Prime Minster may not be so far fetched. If achieved, he could become the 20th Prime Minister produced by Eton.

The prosperous young boy is set to begin his educational journey in 2017 at Summer Fields School and then to Eton College in 2019, an education that could have cost the Chaurasia family up to £63,000.

“I never thought I’d get the chance to go to such a nice school,” says the eleven-year-old schoolboy. “I was quite satisfied with myself when I heard the news.

“I still rely on my parents for a lot in my life, but this opportunity will give me a lot of independence, and I think that will be beneficial for my future.

“In saying that, I wouldn’t be anywhere without my parents. If I didn’t have them, I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I have. I want to thank them for everything they have done for me.”
