Chris Morris and Rob March were presented with their scholarships at the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship Awards Ceremony in London.

Students are selected for their potential as future leaders in engineering and the two, year 12 pupils took part in a rigorous selection process which included a detailed application form with teacher’s reference, a two-hour aptitude exam and a university-based interview.

The scholarships support students through their sixth form studies and encourage them into top universities and higher apprenticeship schemes.

Arkwright will provide the students and the school with an annual financial contribution and will organise a range of enrichment activities including mentoring and industry visits.
