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.
St Katherine’s School has already entered three students into the application process and this has seen them take a challenging two-hour exam, the results for which they will receive this month.
If successful, the candidates, Archie Sharp, Oliver Gedge and Beau Smith-Henderson, will then undergo a final rigorous interview and testing process at Bath University.
