Ex-Pupil Steals the Limelight

After ex-pupil Shaun Hughes won the Engineering Employers Federation's North West Young Engineer of the year award recently, he was put forward to compete in the national judging.

On the 31st January 2013, Shaun and his family attended a prestigious National Gala Dinner, where the best of British Manufacturing was celebrated at the magnificent Grand Connaught Rooms, London.

Shaun came runner up in the national competition. His mum contacted school to let us know how extremely proud the whole family are and to inform us that representatives from industry were approaching Shaun following the gala dinner and giving him their contact details making great efforts to poach him from Scottish Power!

Shaun enjoyed engineering lessons from a young age and after studying the higher diploma in engineering for two years, decided that a career in the sector was definitely the right choice for him.

The school wishes him every success in the future and hope he has a long, happy and successful career.
