Riley Partridge,13, from Chester doesn’t want his world to close in on him because of his stammer.
He's stammered since he first started to talk. It varies in severity - some days it’s really bad and on other days it doesn’t bother him.
At school, Riley’s favourite subject is Drama but he gets nervous when he has to say his lines and doesn’t like to have the main part as it's too much pressure.
- School for Stammerers is on ITV tonight at 9:00pm.

It might be the season for panto but this year our region can boast the world premiere of a traditional children's favourite. It's a stage version of Enid Blyton's Secret Seven created especially for Chester's new theatre Storyhouse by its creative director Alex Clifton.
