Plympton Academy student invited to Peter Cane Prize Giving Day

We are thrilled to share that Rachael, a Sixth Form student at Plympton Academy, has been invited to attend the Peter Cane Prize Giving Day at the Corpus Christi College Oxford.

The Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring lawyers to analyse a legal text and communicate their analysis.

I have always aspired to study law at a top university and this competition has given me the confidence to do so – I am now going to apply for Oxford University alongside the London School of Economics and Exeter University.  The experience and depth of knowledge I gained will also be invaluable for my applications and interviews. – Rachael, Plympton Academy Sixth Form Student 

Rachael’s entry was held in high regard by judges, and compliments were made on how she engaged with the legislative materials, and sought to understand their meaning and effect. The essay was especially noted for its thoughtful introduction to the policy issues raised by the hypothetical case.

This is a remarkable achievement and the result of the essay Rachael submitted to the Peter Cane Legal Reasoning competition being classed as ‘Highly Commended’.

We are so proud of Rachael – it takes a lot of courage to put yourself up against a high quality national field and her success is well deserved. She is a great role model for all of our students, demonstrating that – with high aspiration, courage and hard work –  we can all be successful, even at the highest level. – Mr Langmead, Vice Principal

Congratulations Rachael, on your incredible accomplishment!
