A homeless pupil has achieved four A*s and won a place to study law at Cambridge University after spending 12 hours a day in his sixth-form library.
Jacob Lewis, a 22-year-old from Cardiff, could barely afford to eat after he was left homeless following a fall out with his family. The student then lost his zero-hours contract job at a nightclub when he asked for time-off to take his exams.
“At one point I became homeless and had to start sofa surfing. Having a permanent home with my family wasn’t an option.”
