From Sarah Carrington, the headteacher of Stoughton Nursery and Infant School

The Stoughton Infant School community were extremely proud and honored to hear that the Nobel Prize winner for literature, Kazuo Ishiguro, started his education at Stoughton in the 1960s.

How wonderful that the staff at the time, were able to give Kazuo a great start to his educational journey, inspiring him to write.

Little did those members of staff know that he would go on to such great things.

We have heard that it was a member of the teacher staff at the time that gave Kazuo the freedom to read what he was interested in, which was supposedly spy novels and not books from the school reading scheme.
