BGS Old Boy, Mike Taylor, visited school recently to talk to current students about his journey from BGS schoolboy to life as an officer in the Royal Navy.
Mike reflected on the skills of Leadership and Teamwork that he had developed whilst at BGS and he urged students to embrace every opportunity available to them whilst at school.
He encouraged them to work hard and to follow their dreams for a fulfilling career, whatever that may be.
Students engaged in a question and answer session, asking some insightful questions.
The younger members of the audience were intrigued by life in the Royal Navy and were particularly interested to know what food was available whilst on board ship!
Mike enjoyed his return to school and would be happy to offer advice in the future to any students considering applying to join the Royal Navy.
