"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 abundance of music at Bolton School was one of my main reasons for going there. I remember visiting before I took the entrance exam and thinking ‘I really want to come here’. While at school I had so many opportunities to participate in both the Senior Choir and Chamber Choir, and the Music Department regularly held informal concerts which were fantastic opportunities to perform. I remember the choir performed Verdi’s Requiem — and that’s something that’s stuck with me as it is such a wonderful piece.
