Former boxing supremo Frank Bruno was back in the ring when he visited Greys Education Centre in Kempston.
He spent time with staff and students, and worked with some of the students in the ring.
Greys has a boxing and mentoring programme which is run by assistant headteacher Tony Boatswain. He said: “Over the years this programme has proved successful with our pupils and with students across the local authority. Frank liked what he saw at our academy and has pledged to support what we are doing in any way he can.”
