A Skegness student’s aspirations in the legal profession have taken a major boost after a top university offered him a place on a prestigious law course.

Alec Young feared his professional ambitions would never be realised after his confidence levels hit an all-time low.

But thanks to the support offered by the David Ross Education Trust at Skegness Grammar School and high profile legal professionals, Alec has now been offered a place at Oxford University’s St Catherine’s College to read law - conditional on him achieving three As in his A-levels this summer.

“The support I have received through DRET for my university application has been exemplary,” said Alec.

The school’s director of sixth form studies, Jay Sturman, is delighted by Alec’s success.

“He is a model student who demonstrates an enormous amount of determination to succeed,” he said.

“DRET has played a key role, as Alec acknowledges, but he has won his Oxford place largely through his own endeavours,” Jay continued.
