RESPECTED child cancer specialist Professor Bruce Morland went back to school last week.

Professor Morland was a pupil at Windsor Boys School between 1971 and 1978, returning to be guest of honour at its speech day on Wednesday.

He told the boys he had not been a ‘high flyer’ at school, but had used dedication, hard-work and tenacity to make it as a doctor.

He said he had spent 35 years working in the NHS, seeing child cancer survival rates rise in a way he never thought possible.

He kept the boys entertained with some of his schoolboy stories – some of which showed how much the school had changed in 40 years.

During the evening headteacher Gavin Henderson paid special tribute to former headteacher Peter Blake who died recently.
