The School is delighted to announce that Ethan (L6H2) has been successful in receiving an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship.
Scholars are selected for their potential as future engineering leaders by assessing their academic, practical and leadership skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). These are assessed through a rigorous selection process comprising of an assessed application form including and a two-hour aptitude examination.
The Scholarships support future engineering students through their Sixth Form studies and encourage them into top universities. The Scholarships consist of an annual financial award to each recipient and to the School, and a range of enrichment activities, such as mentoring and industry visits, that enhance their experience of engineering and technical design in a real-world context.
Arkwright Engineering Scholarships are very highly regarded by universities and industry and are one of the most prestigious accolades that a talented Sixth Form student pursuing a career in engineering can achieve.
While this is always a noteworthy achievement, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that the number Sponsors has reduced for this year's cohort, significantly reducing number of Scholarships available. It is a measure of Ethan's potential to be an outstanding leader in the Engineering field that he has been successful under such difficult circumstances.
