Many congratulations to Felix Mallalieu in the Lower Sixth, who has been awarded an Arkwright Scholarship. One of the most prestigious scholarships of its type, it aims to inspire and nurture high-calibre 16-year-old students to be future leaders in the engineering profession.
Felix is the fourth Bedford School boy to be awarded an Arkwright Scholarship in as many years; he follows in the footsteps of George Christian who received the scholarship in 2016, Gabriel Von der Hyde in 2015 and James Hughes in 2014.
The scholarship offers support in numerous ways, for example, valuable hands-on work experience, support for curriculum projects and a personal mentor who can help with aspects of study and career planning. It also includes a cash prize, industry-based engineering experience days, magazine subscriptions and technical lectures.
Well done Felix.
