    Question How to write a letter to a school for asking about their scholarships?

    I want to study abroad in England and I will write a letter to a school asking about their scholarships. But I don't know how to write a letter in a formal way. Please give me some recommendation!

    Should I write "at Hanoi-Amsterdam school" or "in Hanoi-Amsterdam school", Mr.Rover?
