Back in den – Theo Paphitis returns to Ambler Primary School

Theo Paphitis with Ambler Primary pupils

Published: February 17, 2012

DRAGON’S Den star Theo Paphitis returned to his old primary school in Highbury to make a film about dyslexia for Sunday’s BBC1 Lifeline programme.

Theo, a former pupil of Ambler Primary School, said of his time there: “Ambler Primary School played a big part in moulding my character and in turn, I suppose, made me the man I am today.”

He visited the school to film a Lifeline appeal for the British Institute for Brain Injured Children, a charity that specialises in supporting children with learning disabilities. The straight-talking Dragon is dyslexic.
