James Pollard

James attended BMS from 2004 – 2015, a student at the school from Year 3 to Year 13 when he was made Deputy Head Boy. Despite being relatively academic and keen to extend his learning by attending the University of Nottingham to study History and American Studies, he struggled to find the career path that he really wanted to follow. In this video he talks about adjusting to University after leaving the BMS community, offers advice for other students who also do not have clear career plans and discusses how his experiences led him to work in education and the benefits of being a teacher.
