THE secondary school in Pill has joined a prestigious programme aimed at encouraging more youngsters into engineering.
St Katherine’s School has joined The Arkwright Scholarships Trust which sees scholarships rewarded to high-calibre students in year 11.
The trust’s purpose is to identify and nurture future leaders in engineering and related areas of design.
Those receiving scholarships are supported through their A-levels with a £1,000 grant and then encouraged to pursue engineering or related field at university or through an apprenticeship.
The sponsorship is provided by a range of establishments including industrial companies, universities and trade associations.
