Parkstone Grammar School students Summer New, Jess Campbell-Dyke and Amelie Snelgrove are rightly proud of having secured a place in the finals of The Legal Apprentice competition.
Launched last September by law firm Kingsley Napley LLP in partnership with The Times, the competition saw 902 teams from 308 schools across the UK compete against each other through a series of heats testing pupils’ drafting, negotiation and interpersonal skills.
The final, which is being held at News UK (headquarters of The Times) on 19 June, will see four schools – Parkstone Grammar School in Dorset, Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School in Kent, St Mary’s Grammar School in Ulster and Rhyl Sixth Form College in Wales – battle it out to be crowned the winning team.
Students in the winning team will each receive £500 and will be interviewed by Kingsley Napley for the ultimate prize of winning a highly coveted paid-for apprenticeship at the firm following completion of their A-Levels. The winning team’s school will also receive £5000 to put towards any technical advancement of their choice. The second runner-up will receive a paid-for internship at Kingsley Napley and the remaining pupil from the winning team will receive one week’s work experience at the firm. There’s a lot to compete for!
