Lord Grade inspires a new generation

Michael Grade, Chairman of the Pinewood Studios Group, visited Chalfont Community College to take part in an Inspiring the Future event.

He was joined by colleagues from the studios working in a number of different divisions including legal, post production, HR, TV, Finance and CSR.

Headteacher of Chalfont Community College, Sue Tanner said:

“We’re really privileged today to welcome Lord Grade and his colleagues and to hear their thoughts and advice on careers in this industry. It’s so important that somebody of his reputation has come here. Sometimes the creative arts are overlooked by government and Lord Grade can inspire our students in this area and give them confidence.”

Ms Tanner described Lord Grade as “one of the leading figures in film and television”.
