    Bill Nighy went to the school my brother goes to just round the corner
    Also Derren Brown went to another school just round the corner too in the same town, and my dad went to the same prep school as Emma Watson, Jack Whitehall and Tim Henman. So not really my school but close enough!

    Richard Wilson went to the primary school where I went for orchestra rehearsals if that counts.

    Also, not quite on topic, but Waterloo Road is now being filmed in the school that I went to for music lessons and higher chemistry.

    So that's my schooling claim to fame

    I went to the same school as Joe Hart, he was a couple of years above me.
    Also, not quite as big, but Billy Jones who currently plays for West Brom. He held my school's record throw for javelin, and in my last couple of years I was my school's best javelin thrower, but I could never beat his goddam record
