An Amble student has given an ‘inspiring and comical’ speech at a special event for budding teachers, after being handpicked to do the presentation.

Alex Penrose, from James Calvert Spence College, was invited to speak at Teach First’s opening ceremony at Northumbria University for candidates of the scheme.

Alex was selected to do the speech after impressing on the Teach First Young Future’s Programme.

Teacher Phil Anderson said: “Alex spoke incredibly well and should be very proud of himself.”
