Famous faces from the sport and entertainment industries come together in a video to celebrate with pupils and staff after a primary school was rated ‘outstanding’.

Harris Primary Academy Shortlands in Kingswood Road, Bromley, was rated ‘outstanding’ following an Ofsted inspection in March.

The video included a message from Samuel L. Jackson who offered his support after a school parent reached out  after the judgment. 

Comedian Tom Allen, GoCompare singer Wynne Evans, rugby players Jonathan Joseph and Andy Powell and Premier League footballer Ethan Pinnock were also among those who featured in the celebration.

The video, put together by the Academy’s Principal Mr Jordan Hollis, sees celebrities ask “am I famous enough?” to celebrate the school’s achievement.
