Met chief goes back to classroom

Have your say

IT WAS back to the classroom for Metropolitan Police commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe, who returned to his old school in Sheffield to talk to students about his job.

Mr Hogan-Howe, who was born in Brightside and attended Hinde House School, visited the secondary in Shiregreen Lane yesterday.

He was invited by Year Seven pupils Levi Moran-Healy and Wade Cocking.

Headteacher Chris French said: “It was great, we had a lovely day. 
“He had a tour of the school and then he sat down with about 25 students and answered lots of questions about his job, his ambitions and his time at school here.

“They asked him all sorts of questions about what it was like to be commissioner of the Met, his life at school here, whether he had any regrets, and the effects of the job on his family. He was very personable and down to earth.”
