Two scoop Arkwright Scholarship

Two pupils are celebrating after being awarded a prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship.

Finlay Drummond and Katie Zhang, S5, are now among only a handful of very talented pupils who were awarded the competitive scholarship in Scotland.

Mr McCormick, Head of Technology, said: “Their hard work and dedication has been recognised through this impressive achievement. They will now have opportunities to engage with an industry sponsor for work experience, and will receive funding to help further their study of engineering subjects.”

Finlay and Katie had to complete a practical project, sit an examination and were interviewed before being awarded the Scholarship. Finlay recently found out he will be sponsored by Thales while Cundall has agreed to sponsor Katie.

Current S4 pupils taking either Graphic Communication or Engineering Science will be starting their application process in the very near future.
