Oscar wins prestigious Arkwright Scholarship
Oscar Wordsworth, Year 12 at Stamford School, has been awarded the prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship, given to students who are seen as potential engineering leaders by national STEM education charity, The Smallpiece Trust. Oscar joins a long list of successful Stamford students to have been awarded this scholarship since 2002.
Over one thousand students between the ages of fifteen and sixteen applied, following nominations from their schools. Oscar has undertaken a rigorous, year-long application process, involving an assessed application form, teacher’s reference, two-hour problem-solving aptitude exam and university-based interview.
Mr Steve Newton, Head of Design Technology at Stamford School, said: “We are extremely proud of Oscar’s achievements; he has worked diligently throughout his GCSE studies, producing an outstanding collapsible bike maintenance stand.
“His Arkwright Engineering Scholarship will provide him with links to a sponsor company, opportunities to attend courses and will ultimately put him in good stead for a future career in Mechanical Engineering.”
The Arkwright scholarship supports students through their sixth form studies, offering access to a wide range of enrichment experiences including industry conferences, mentoring, residential courses and university VIP days.
