‘I am delighted to be able to offer him the opportunity to join our growing community of impressive young engineers at the Dyson Institute.
‘I look forward to welcoming the second cohort of undergraduate engineers to the Dyson Institute in September, and hope that he will be among them.
‘Congratulations on having nurtured an exceptional young talent. I hope to receive many more applications from Bay House School in the years to come.’
