After leaving School, Jim went on to Salford University to study Economics.
What influenced your parents to send you to the Grammar?
I am afraid that the story is very simple. I passed the 11 Plus and was given the opportunity to go to the Grammar School. Since the school was the best in the area I did not hesitate to attend.
What was it like? Are you still in touch with people now and how has the experience helped shape you as a person?
My school years were fantastic and a great opportunity. I made many friends who I am still in touch with and I received a great base from which to build my career.
What have you been doing since leaving the School?
Salford University 1984-1987
Touche Ross London 1987-1994
Informa PLC 1994 – 2004
Johnson Service Group 2004-2007
Lonrho Holdings Limited 2013-2015
What advice would you give to a current student/someone about to leave the School?
Enjoy the experience, work hard and take advantage of everything on offer.
