Year 10 pupil David likes to keep on the move – PE and Drama his favourite lessons helping him progress towards his dream job as a sports coach.

The 14-year-old football and tennis fan also likes Maths and has wise words of encouragement and support for all new pupils about to start life at Excelsior.

“My favourite subjects are Drama and PE – I like Drama because it’s interactive and you get to move around instead of sitting down all the time,” said David.

“I’d like to help teach people sports when I leave school, especially football. Excelsior is a great school, it’s got teachers that you respect and learn from.

“The teachers help you get through your work. I would say to any new pupil that there’s nothing to be scared about.

“It’s a good school, you’ll find friends who will be there for you and support you.”
