Paul Rowlett, who only passed one GCSE but went on to found EverythingBranded.co.uk, spent six weeks at Haileybury Turnford School in Herfordshire for Channel 4’s The Secret Teacher series, which starts this week. Tes reports.
Mr Rowlett said: “A class full of 60 kids? I mean, how can a teacher do the job? It’s near impossible, surely.”
“The school, it’s a very, very emotional, physically draining, mentally draining place,” he said. “I’m not scared of hard work – that’s why I’ve been successful – but this is a different kind of hard work. I’m trying not to feel like I’m out of my depth here.”
