AN ILMINSTER crash victim who has fought back from a traumatic brain injury to launch a successful career in teaching has met his MP.

March Marcus Fysh, South Somerset MP, visited Buckler’s Mead Academy in Yeovil after being invited by his constituent, William Mieville-Hawkins.

Mr Fysh helped in Will’s recovery from a traumatic brian injury following a serious car accident and Will now works at the academy as a humanities teaching assistant.

The Member of Parliament had a tour of Buckler’s Mead Academy’s support facilities for students and then he observed Will in action, teaching a small group of Year 8 students in a history lesson on the gunpowder plot.

Will, 28, from Ilminster, said: “Marcus has been an exceptional support to me during my recovery from a traumatic brain injury that I suffered in April 2016.

“He has worked hard for me to ensure I get the correct levels of support from the DWP and social care.

“He really made the effort with me and I wanted him to see me in action in the classroom.”

Mr Fysh said ‘“As soon as I received Will’s invitation to see him at work I was delighted to accept. It was great to see Will back teaching in the class room– he is a true credit to Buckler's Mead.

“It’s a fantastic school and you can really sense the passion and drive by the staff for educating their students.”

Buckler’s Mead headteacher Sara Gorrod added: “ We are delighted to have been able to assist Will on his road to recovery.

“He is a determined young man, 100 per cent committed to making a return to teaching after an horrific accident.”
