"When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is to 'go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time at the school where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas."

The teachers as a whole at Park Road Junior Boys' School combined seriousness and helpful amiability in equal measure - just what I, in my later years, would ask of any teacher. The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything. It provided, in the highest sense of the phrase, a liberal education.
