James is very much an animal person; at only 14 years old he has a real knack with the cattle with many of the young calves loving him.

He attended Beachborough School in Westbury until he was 13 and is now at Magdalen College School in Brackley doing his GCSE’s. He has a good plan for the future and already has visions of going to Harper Adams University to study farm animal bioscience with a view to doing something in the nutrition / veterinary side of livestock in the future.

When not studying or helping with the cattle he is a member of Buckingham Air Cadets and is a very keen and competent young man with a shotgun, shooting both game and clay pigeons to a very high standard.
