We were delighted to welcome former England Football international Danny Mills to school on Wednesday 12 November. He immersed himself completely in a very hectic schedule for the day which included an assembly at 8:40am followed by a variety of lessons in the morning before serving lunch in the Lower Site canteen, much to the delight of the students (and the catering staff!!).
Danny’s visit was the result of a very generous donation from a parent who asked if, in exchange for the original prize of having a meal cooked for her and eleven friends by Danny (Celebrity MasterChef Runner Up 2012); he might consider visiting school for a day? A request Danny graciously agreed to.
Danny dedicates a significant amount of his time to a number of charities and is a very proactive patron of both Shine and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and it was his work for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal that lead to him being in school. Throughout the day his friendly, engaging and amenable nature ensured that his visit was a resounding success that was thoroughly enjoyed by a significant number of our students who will remember the occasion for many years to come.
