Actor James Nesbitt, (Cold Feet, Lucky Man) visited Langley Park School for Girls in Beckenham last week to talk to students and give them unique insights into working in the media world.
With a father who was a primary school headteacher and three older sisters who all became teachers, James was always going to care about education.
In his role as chancellor of the University of Ulster, he has been a continuous advocate for young people’s access to higher education.
He visited the school to promote the relaunched media department and to talk to students about the importance of studying in this vibrant employment area.
With one in six new jobs in London last year being created in the sector and with women still under represented in the top jobs, LPGS aims to encourage its students to strive for those roles.
James also talked to drama students as well as the wider student body.
