Theresa May MP

Theresa May became Britain's second female Prime Minister on 13th July 2016

Theresa May attended a state primary, an independent convent school and then a grammar school in the village of Wheatley, which became the Wheatley Park Comprehensive School during her time there.

The young Theresa Brasier, as she was then, threw herself into village life, taking part in a pantomime that was produced by her father and working in the bakery on Saturdays to earn pocket money. Friends recall a tall, fashion-conscious young woman who from an early age spoke of her ambition to be the first woman prime minister. (Extract from BBC News - Who is Theresa May?)

Supergrass - Gaz Coombes, Danny Goffey and Mickey Quinn

Although Supergrass (the name, by the way, apparently means absolutely nothing) were not convened until February 1993, the origins of the group go back to when Coombes and Goffey put together a four-piece, the Jennifers, while they were students at Wheatley Park Comprehensive School, in Oxford. Mickey Quinn, Supergrass' 25-year-old bass player, had also been a pupil there several years earlier. (Extract from Rolling Stone - Supergrass: Mod Squad)

Jack Brooks

A Cricketer, aka The Headband Warrior, was one of the leading lights in Yorkshire's Championship wins of 2014 and 2015. His 68 wickets were only outdone by Steve Magoffin, Sussex's Australian seamer, in 2014 and he had the fourth highest tally the following year. His full-of-a-length attacking style endeared him to the Yorkshire public as he confirmed not only his talent but a crowd-pleasing nature that refuted suggestions that there were no characters left on the county circuit.

Laura Bailey

A model and writer, Laura sailed through Wheatley Park school with straight As and gained a first in English from Southampton University.

She was captain of the Wheatley school netball, hockey and rounders teams. Former friends and neighbours were shocked that she made her name as a model and not in an academic field. (Extract from Oxford Mail)
