Year six - Arkwright class
'proud to be prestonian'
Our 'Proud Prestonian' is Sir Richard Arkwright (1732-1792), he was an entrepreneur and inventor whose ideas led to him becoming recognised as the 'father of the modern industrial factory system'. He invented a machine known as the 'water frame', which revolutionised the cotton-spinning process.
