Founded in 1991, the Arkwright Engineering Scholarships programme aims to identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in engineering. Only the highest performing students are selected for Arkwright Scholarships and those who succeed receive academic and financial support during their studies.

After a rigorous selection process that assessed the candidates’ academic, practical and leadership skills in engineering disciplines, Callum and Jenna were presented with their accolades at an aerospace-themed ceremony at the Institute of Engineering and Technology in London.

Repton School’s Head of Design and Technology, Miss Gemma Hill, commented: “The department was delighted that both Callum and Jenna received a scholarship award from the Arkwright Engineering trust, especially under such fierce competition. It is testament to their enthusiasm for STEM related subjects, and their natural ability, that they were the recipients of this Scholarship.

We are proud to say this continues over a decade long tradition of two or more Repton Design and Technology students successfully completing the rigorous annual application process. Congratulations to them both!”
