Arkwright Scholarships Trust
The Arkwright Scholarships Trust is a registered charity that administers the most prestigious scholarship scheme of its type in the UK.
They identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in Engineering and technical (as opposed to aesthetic) Design. They do this by awarding Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, through a rigorous selection process, to high-calibre students in year 11.
Their Engineering Scholarships support students through their A Levels and encourage students to pursue Engineering or technical Design at university or through a higher-level apprenticeship and to take up careers in the field.
Every Scholarship is sponsored by industrial companies, universities, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional engineering institutions, the Armed Services, Worshipful Companies, industry regulators or personal donors.
We are very proud of our very own Gareth Littlewood who has successfully won this scholarship, this year, through his hard work and diligence; he has certainly set the bar for future engineers/scientists to follow at R E S.
We are delighted that the majority of our students successfully progress onto Higher Education and we are increasing our range of subjects and courses. Students undertake a wide range of ‘enrichment’ activities that support university personal statements and references. Read our Overview document for more.
