A man who runs free maths classes for primary age children has been recognised in the New Year Honours list with an MBE.
Gbolahan Bright has been running the Bright Academy maths clubs for primary age children in London and Essex for the past 20 years.
“I have gained a lot from this society. I have been blessed and it would have been ungrateful of me if I did not give back,” he said.
Of the 500 or so children who have taken the classes, about 50 gained their GCSE while still at primary school.
