A former Ravenscroft pupil is celebrating after winning a first class honours degree in building services at the University of Hertfordshire.

David Watkins, 23, of Salisbury Road, Barnet, graduated over the summer and is now working for Jonathan Hart Associates.

He will receive his certificate at the university's annual awards ceremony in November. Mr Watkins, who left the school in Barnet Lane, Barnet, after A-Levels, is planning to start his own company.
