Celebrating Success 18.09.14

OL Jonathan Adkin QC returned to the school for the first time in 23 years for this year’s Senior Prize-Giving:  he is seen here presenting the Duffell Cup for Arts and Science to Andrew Russell of Year 13.

In his time at school he made his name as not only an academic but also on the rugby field, where he played tight head prop for the 1st XV and especially with the scouting movement where he ended up as quartermaster and was heavily involved in building the Scout Centre.  After reading History at Oxford he entered the legal profession and specialised in commercial and chancery litigation becoming a QC in 2013.  He has acted in some of the most prominent cases of recent times and is described as ‘Technically superb and very determined…a superb rounded advocate whose advice is always spot-on….gets right to the top of even the most tangled legal puzzles…effortlessly good.’
