CLEVEDON School welcomed former pupil, and now international goalkeeper, Jack Butland to its annual celebration evening.

Held for A-level and GCSE pupils on September 12, the evening was put on to reward the teenagers for their achievements in this year’s exams.

During his visit, Jack told pupils about his experiences in the footballing world through an interview with headteacher John Wells.

Mr Wells said: “I was absolutely thrilled and delighted that Jack could spare the time to visit us on this special evening. The students have achieved some fantastic examination results this summer and it was a fitting tribute to them that we were able to get such a special guest.”
