Lord of the Rings actor Sir Iain McKellen had some stern words for the pupils at Chew Valley School near Bristol during a recent visit. He was visiting the school to celebrate their work promoting human rights, opposing bullying and homophobic language and behaviour at school.

They recently addressed a Stonewall Conference in London and were made Stonewall Champions. Stonewall is an organisation set up by Sir Iain McKellen promoting equal rights.
