A student who wants to become an engineer has been given a scholarship to help her in her studies.

Chloe Hayden, a year 12 student at Backwell School, became interested in aeronautical engineering during a taster day, which involved building and designing model aeroplanes.

She applied for the Arkwright Scholarship, which is given to 16-year-olds following a rigorous selection process.

Chloe had to submit an entry form, take part in an aptitude test and pass an interview.

She has been given £300 a year to help with a A-level studies in maths, geography and physics.

Teacher Gregory Brees who helped her with the application said: “Myself and Ms Thorn, as her DT teachers, have supported her but this is all down to Chloe’s hard work and dedication.”

Chloe collected the award at a presentation evening in London.
