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.
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.
