Recently, Fifth Form pupil, Oliver Wood, was delighted to find out that he has passed the first stage (an intense aptitude test including a two hour Design paper) for the prestigious Arkwright Scholarships.

Oliver will now go forward to interview stage at Bath University during the Easter break. The Scholarships are always oversubscribed with 1348 applicants this year.If successful, Oliver would be one of only a handful of pupils from Dean Close to receive a scholarship in recent years and should be congratulated for getting to this stage.

Head of Product Design Technology, Dom Evans, said, “It is great to see one of our top pupils reach this stage, I wish him all the best during the next stage of the process”.
