Sir James Dyson donates £19m to his old school in Holt

Billionaire businessman Sir James Dyson has donated £18.75m to his former school, whose "Generosity" helped pay for his education after his father died. The co-education, private day and boarding school was founded in 1555 and Sir James attended for ten years. Sir James' father, who was head of the Classics department, died soon after he started the school. Sir James has supported engineering in the UK through the James Dyson Foundation which introduces young people to the subject. The foundation has donated £12m to the Imperial College, to open the Dyson School, and £8m to the University of Cambridge.
