Second year running for Arkwright Scholarship

5 June 2007

An Oundle pupil has been selected to receive an Arkwright Scholarship after successfully passing the Arkwright Aptitude Paper, and presenting his GCSE Design and Technology work to a panel of interviewers in March.

Fifth Former Noah Geeves (Ldr) faced his interview at Bath University and took part in a team exercise as part of the challenging process of selection.  Both Noah and the School's Design and Technology Department, will receive a financial award during Noah's A level years at School. 

From an original pool of 743 applicants from 232 Schools, his success follows on from that of Robert Emberson (Ldr) and Caroline Kernick (L) last year, both of whom received Scholarships.

In this year's competition, Timothy Gibson (S) and Alan Liu (B) were also successful in being amongst the 298 to be selected for interview on the basis of their aptitude paper.
