PARK HIGH STUDENT RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIP
We are incredibly proud that our year 12 student, Jayan has recently been awarded an Arkwright Scholarship.
The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Krishna Suresh, visited the school to congratulate Jayan on achieving this prestigious award and spent much time talking to Jayan and his parents about the fantastic opportunities this Scholarship will provide.
The Arkwright Engineering Scholarship supports young people from across the UK who have the potential to be industry’s future leaders in engineering. During their sixth-form, Scholars have access to a range of exciting opportunities to learn more about engineering, such as mentoring and company visits. They are matched with an industry sponsor and Jayan is already been in touch with his; Leicester University’s renowned Department of Engineering.
Scholars are selected following a rigorous selection process comprising of a detailed application form supported by a teacher’s reference, a two-hour aptitude exam and an interview hosted at a top engineering university.
This year there were 1559 students who applied to become a scholar. Jayan was awarded one of only 397 Scholarships. Well done Jayan, you are our first Arkwright Scholar.
