    My secondary school was named after local hero, Sir Harry Smith. I was told that he tried/did burn down the White House. I don't really know how true that is...

    There was also someone on Eastenders or something who came from the school. I have the feeling that he's in a wheelchair...

    I don't care, he's a bloody good driver and claim to fame for my town

    Montell Douglas, sprinter.

    Keeley Hazell, topless model.

    Gary O'Neil, Middlesbrough F.C. footballer, former England U21 captain.

    I know OP asked for famous people but, well, that's the best I got.

    Lol.

    EDIT: Lol, I was just curious so I typed my school name in Google Images and a lot of the results were of Keeley Hazell - the topless model. There weren't many images of my school.

    Won't put from my current college as some local tsrians would guess which if I put the exact names, but a rock band of the early noughties and a soap actress went there and from my previous school another soap person.

    Both the Miliband brothers and N-Dubz went to my dad's old school however. Though not all at the same time.
