Luke Waddell is Arkwright Scholar

Congratulations to Luke Waddell in year 12, who has been confirmed as an Arkwright Scholar for the next two years.

The Arkwright scholarships are awarded to students who show particular promise in the STEM subjects (science, engineering, technology and maths) and give them the opportunity to work with professionals in the engineering industry. These are prestigious awards and competition to receive one is fierce.

For Luke this comes on top of excellent GCSE results, and recent attendance at a ‘Maths Challenge’ summer school for exceptional maths students.

Well done Luke – we are sure that year 12 will be a breeze for you!
