Date Posted: 01/12/2017 | Posted In: Latest news

Ten A Level Law students from QE, are celebrating after each receiving prizes of £125 from Latimer Hinks Solicitors for their progress made in the subject whilst at College.

The prize-giving is part of the Darlington-based organisation’s 125th anniversary celebrations. Hoping to use its anniversary to make a positive contribution to the local community, Anne Elliott, Chief Executive at Latimer Hinks, explains “We wanted to not only recognise the most talented A-Level Law students in Darlington, but also reward those who have made the most progress in completing their programmes of study.”

Among the winners were Cameron Brown and Jaz Kaur who both achieved A* grades in their A Level Law examinations and who are now studying at university in London. They were both named ‘Highest achieving student’. The other eight recipients of the £125 prize are current QE students, including Matthew Pindar who was named ‘Highest achieving male student’ and Rebecca Heighington who won ‘Highest achieving female student’ for their outstanding AS results in Law. Elro Aspiras, Holly Hall, Connor Spence, Ben Taylor, Jessica Hodgson and Georgia Arrowsmith are also all celebrating this wonderful recognition. All of these students are predicted to perform very well in their final A Level examinations next summer. Rebecca states, “I’m honoured to have received the Latimer-Hinks Law award and I’d like to specifically thank Anne Elliott as she has provided an exceptional role model for women entering the legal profession, something which I intend to do following studying Law at university.” Ben adds, “ I was glad all the work I put in during my first year resulted in a very good AS grade. The award is the cherry on the cake!”

Tim Fisher, Principal, comments “It is wonderful that Latimer Hinks is rewarding the hard work of our Law students and we are so incredibly proud of all of the prize winners. Working with another local organisation with an excellent reputation amongst local people is fantastic and together, we are able to show the progress of Darlington’s young students to a wide audience”.
