“My favourite memory of studying at Lincoln Minster School is meeting my girlfriend who I am still with after almost six years; I also enjoyed the opportunity of being football captain in Year 10/11.
“LMS helped me get to where I am today particularly with maths skills which are an everyday essential for a joiner – I am always measuring lengths of timber and need quick mental maths and angles for roofing so that’s really important to me.
“Being around and involved with such good people at school was great and being involved in sports was another helpful thing because I can communicate and be friendly to everyone I meet.
“In the future I would like to run my own carpentry, joinery and building business. I want to give the opportunity back to younger people who want to learn and earn good money! I want to settle down and have a family of my own later in life too.
“I know not everyone will enjoy school every single day, but all I can honestly say is that school is one of the best times of your life when you think back so enjoy it and work hard to get your grades that you want.”
