Congratulations to Lower Sixth Form student, Abigail Johnson, who has been awarded The Royal Navy Arkwright Engineering Scholarship. This is in recognition of outstanding potential as a future leader in Engineering.

The Arkwright Scholarships Trust ensures that more of the country’s ‘brightest and best’ science and maths students remain focused on an engineering path over the 16 to 18 age range - the critical years when teenage dreams and aspirations translate into firm tertiary education choices and career plans. The charity fully supports both higher apprentice and undergraduate career paths.

The charity awards prestigious scholarships through rigorous selection to outstanding technology-minded school students. Candidates must pass a selection process comprising a detailed application form with teacher’s reference, a two-hour engineering problem-solving exam and an engineering-focussed interview. The scholarships provide engineering enrichment, funding and experience throughout the two years of A levels and BTEC Level 3s.

Well done, Abigail!
