The ECP Prince of Wales Scholarship

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is the UK Patron of the English College in Prague. Everyone at the ECP was very touched to receive this message from him, sending his best wishes. We are very grateful to Prince Charles for thinking of us. He has himself had Covid-19 and we are delighted that he has made a full recovery.

Founder Patron

It was President Havel who asked Prince Charles to join him as a Founder Patron of the English College. Since the opening of the school in September 1994, HRH has visited the English College on two occasions. The first time was in October 2000 and he came to the ECP again in March 2010. Many teachers and former students have very happy memories of his visits and of the interest he has showed in the College.

Text of the message

As we face quite unprecedented challenges, I did just want to let you know that you are very much in my special thoughts at such a very anxious time for everyone. 

The disruption we have experienced to normal life has been profound and therefore I can well imagine the appalling difficulties you must be experiencing.

Nonetheless, I have no doubt that you will deal with these new circumstances with determination, imagination and resourcefulness. As you do so, please be assured of my support, my gratitude and my admiration.
