David Dein

27 Mar 2024

On Wednesday 27th March 2024, all year 12 students attended a talk in the main hall from David Dein MBE. As the former Chairman of Arsenal Football Club, and one of the founding members of the Premier League, he delivered a talk to students on his journey in life, and some important lessons he has learnt along the way. He also discussed entrepreneurship, and business opportunities within football, as well as the need to have a good work ethic, think creatively, and to not be afraid to be brave. It was a fantastic talk, with student feedback being excellent.

Both David and his PA also commented on how engaged the students were, as well as how good their behaviour and conduct was on the whole. Having visited over 600 schools, he stated that this is one of the best he has been to in terms of student attitude and participation.
