Dame Emma Thompson congratulates Scottish school in running for global prize

In the race to be crowned the world’s best, a school has received a message from an A-list celebrity.

Actress and screenwriter Dame Emma Thompson congratulates staff and students at Dunnoon Grammar in Argyll and Bute for reaching the final 10 of T4 Education World’s Best School Awards for Community Support.

In a video for the school, Dame Emma said the news was “amazing” and added: “I am here to congratulate you, in this extraordinary global awards category, in the ‘Community Collaboration in the World’s Best’ school. Prize’.

“It means all of you amazing young people are going out on national, international and local levels, and sharing, learning and giving away your skills. It is an amazing initiative to be a part of.


“You are all so extraordinary and I can’t wait to hear about the result later in the year. Best wishes, congratulations, best wishes and lots of love.”

Dame Emma has a long association with Dunnoon and had planned to attend the school to hear the announcement, but prior work commitments meant this was not possible. Her husband, actor Greg Wise, attended her place.

Dunnoon Grammar headmaster David Mitchell said it was a “true honour” to receive the couple’s support.

He continued: “Dame Emma is a longtime friend and supporter of the school, so it means a lot to everyone that she has taken time out of her busy schedule to send us this lovely video.

“To be shortlisted for the Best School in the World is definitely an amazing achievement for us, so it is great to see two globally recognized actors getting accepted.
