Paul Allott – GCSE Awards Evening Guest of Honour!

Although a little pared down this year, it was pertinent to be reminded that celebrating success is at the heart
of what we do, and it was a pleasure to recognise the hard work, tenacity and achievement of so many of our
students. We may have only had a third of our usual numbers in the Hall for the event, however, it was a
splendid evening.
It was a great pleasure to welcome back Paul Allott to the School as Guest of Honour. Paul,
an old boy of the School, played 13 Test matches and 13 One Day Internationals for England. When Paul retired
he became a commentator for Sky Sports and in 2017 took on the role of Director of Cricket at Lancashire.
Paul delivered an inspirational speech focusing on how his education at AGSB had been seminal to his success
in cricket and beyond.
