Tyler, 12, is the face of new academy
A 12-YEAR-OLD boy has become the face of a new Nottingham academy, thanks to an eye-catching ad on city buses.
Tyler Simpson, from Bulwell, was one of a dozen pupils who agreed to model for a photoshoot to help promote the new Top Valley Academy.
As well as appearing in the new academy's prospectus and website, Tyler was also selected to appear on the advert for Nottingham City Transport's number 88 route, which stops near the academy.
Tyler said: "It's funny to see myself up there, but my mum's really proud of me, although no one has asked for my autograph yet!"
Graham Allen, MP for Nottingham North will officially open the new academy on Friday, October 12.
