Peter Causton OP (1983-88)

English, University of Cambridge

“I will never forget the way the school helped me out when my parents split up just before I started A levels. Without a bursary I would not have been able to remain at St Paul’s and complete my studies: I doubt I would have secured a place in English at Cambridge which led to law school and my fulfilling career as a solicitor, barrister, mediator and deputy district judge. I would urge everyone to get behind this campaign and to help to build a brighter future for those like me. Social mobility is very important to maintain a just society. It has been decreasing over the years and efforts to improve it will benefit everyone.”
