Alistair Brownlee's schools - Great Britain

World Class 2012 in partnership with the British Council bring you the stories of the schools where the dreams begin.

Alistair Brownlee

Alistair Brownlee is the current World and European Triathlon Champion.

He competed at Beijing in 2008 and finished twelfth, a remarkable achievement for a 20 year old.

Alistair's achievements have been recognised by the British Olympic Association's and they have twice named him Triathlete of the Year.

His younger brother, Jonathan, is the current European Junior Triathlon.

Alistair went to school in Yorkshire in the north of England.

Alistair's schools

West End Primary School and Richmond House Primary

Alistair went to primary schools in the city of Leeds before moving to Bradford Grammar in year 6.

Bradford Grammar School

Bradford Grammar are twinned with James Brindley School, Birmingham and Knockhall Primary, Kent

Bradford Grammar prides itself on turning out well rounded students who work hard in lessons and are also involved in music, drama and sport.

What makes Bradford Grammar special?

The school's current stars include the junior biathlon team, Olympic hopefuls for 2012 in swimming and cycling and a samba musical ensemble.

Alistair was not only an A grade student, but was also well known as a member of the cross country team who could be spotted running up the hills surrounding the school at lunch times.

We're all so proud of Alistair's success. He's a great role model for our pupils and a shining example of what you can achieve with hard work
Stephen Davidson, head teacher

Jonathan also attended Bradford Grammar and another younger brother is currently in the senior school.

Former Bradford Grammar students include artist David Hockney and Olympic swimmer Adrian Moorhouse.

Staff and students hope to travel to London in 2012 to cheer on Team GB but if they don't make it they will be shouting encouragement from the sofa.

We'll shortly be adding more information about the school so check back to find out more about their famous former pupils.

Alistair is one of the athletes being tracked as London 2012 approaches and they strive to make their Olympic dreams a reality.
