Prestigious Engineering Scholarship Programme


We have been informed today of the outstanding success of one of our students – Sam Bartle, who has been awarded a prestigious scholarship from the Arkwright Scholarships Trust.  Sam passed the tough aptitude tests set by the Trust before being invited to attend an interview at Sheffield University in April.

The Arkwright Trust administers Britain’s most prestigious engineering scholars’ programme, for which students of STEM subjects in this country can be selected. They have been awarding scholarships for over twenty-five years  and their aim is to inspire and nurture the country's future leaders within the engineering profession. Their scholarships support students throughout further education and encourages them to pursue Engineering or Technical Design at university, or through a higher-level apprenticeship, and to take up future careers in the field.

Arkwright Trust Engineering Scholarship will now fund Sam through the sixth form, and potentially university, with a yearly grant along with one-to-one mentoring and advice from past Arkwright Scholars and other professional engineers. He now also has access to a wide range of enrichment events and opportunities, including industry-based engineering experience days and technical lectures.

The Priory Academy LSST has been an Affiliate School to the Arkwright Scholarships Trust for many years and Sam follows in a long line of successful applicants.

Another student, Archie Moss also passed the test and interview and becomes an Arkwright Associate.  The Arkwright Scholarships Trust are currently looking for a suitable industrial sponsor for Archie and he will also become a sponsored scholar if they are successful during the summer.
