Students in order: Utkarsh Sharma, Edward Smith, Noel Philip & Mary Evans.
This year Calday is celebrating the success of 4 of our students receiving the prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship. 1297 students applied for the scholarship nationally in 2021 and 289 students received a scholarship this year. A fantastic achievement by our 4 students; Utkarsh Sharma, Edward Smith, Noel Philip and Mary Evans.
The award is the most esteemed scholarship of its type in the UK and is aimed at those students wishing to pursue a career in engineering. Students are required to undertake a rigorous application process, an examination and an interview. Successful scholars are sponsored by a commercial company, trade association, university, professional institution, armed service, government organisation, worshipful company, charitable trust or personal donor.
Students are matched with a mentor, gaining funding to support them through their A Level studies, opportunities to work within their chosen career pathways and access to a host of other benefits.
Our 4 students this year are now looking to continue developing their skills in their chosen areas. Noel is looking to pursue a career in aeronautical engineering. Mary is looking to pursue a career in Aerospace engineering with her sponsor Team Tempest. Edward is pursuing astronautical engineering with his sponsor the RAF Halton apprentices trust. Utkarsh is looking at pursuing quantum / electrical engineering.
A huge congratulations to all involved and the successful applicants this year.
If you are interested in applying and in Year 11, please speak to Mr Roscoe.
