Championship Footballer Viv Solomon Visits His Old School

It was back to school again for Championship footballer Viv Solomon as he returned to his school in Streatham to meet his old teachers and present them with a souvenir team shirt.

Viv is a former student of Bishop Thomas Grant School and now plays football for Championship team Birmingham City. In fact since January Viv has been on loan to Bolton Wanderers and helped them win promotion to the Championship this season.

Viv left Bishop Thomas Grant School after his GCSEs and was taken into the Birmingham football academy, where he didn’t escape the government drive to ensure everyone in the UK has GCSE Maths grade C or equivalent – “They made me take my Maths up there!” he commented. Viv enjoyed his time at Bishop Thomas Grant School and was keen to pass on to other students how important it is to stay focused at school -  “I learnt the importance of discipline” he said.
