Scholarship puts Edward on right path
A SIXTH-form student could be one of the country's future engineering leaders.
Edward Hunt, from Dean Close School, has been awarded an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship.
The award meant he was given £600 towards his A-level studies.
Head of design technology Dom Evans said: "Edward is a very capable student whose recent GCSE project, a self-watering plant propagator, helped him achieve an A* this summer."

Dr Martin Thomas the national director of Arkwright Scholarship Trust, said the scholarship was respected by top universities and by top engineering employers including Rolls Royce, Microsoft Research, The Royal Air force and The Royal Navy.
"I am delighted to see a student from Dean Close secure this prestigious accolade. Clearly there is a considerable technical talent in the Gloucestershire area," he said.
"With the competition for rewarding jobs becoming ever more fierce, the receipt of an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship can help dynamic young people at the start of their journey to be the country's future leaders in engineering and related area of design."
Edward had to complete an application form, a two-hour aptitude paper, and an interview for the scholarship.
