The Bishop Walsh Roman Catholic School in Sutton Coldfield recently won a contest held by WB to have Rupert Grint visit their school:

n celebration of the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ™ – Part 2” on 3D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD on the 2nd December, Warner Home Video and Sainsbury’s offered one lucky person the chance to win a visit to their secondary school from Rupert Grint. Almost 2000 schools were entered into the competition which is a massive 42% of all eligible schools in the UK.

The winning school Bishop Walsh Roman Catholic School in Sutton Coldfield kept the visit a secret from pupils and revealed the surprise in a special assembly in the lead up to the Christmas break.

One of the stars of the worlds most success film franchise, Rupert Grint visited the school along with co star Oliver Phelps on the morning of the 13th December for an exclusive Q&A and personal delivery of copies of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ™ – Part 2” on Blu-ray. 

Sarah Bird, Director of Marketing for Warner Home Video UK commented "We are delighted to have partnered with Sainsbury's to give the pupils and teachers of the winning school Bishop Walsh Roman Catholic School the opportunity for Rupert Grint and Oliver Phelps to visit them.  They all had a day to remember and magical memories to share with their children in years to come!”

Those lucky students! ARGH. But I’m glad they had a chance to meet two of all the amazing Weasleys! :D

And does anyone find it weird that James is not with Oliver this time?

Those are indeed very lucky students. I bet they had a blast. :) I thought the same thing. Why wouldnt James have gone too? Seems a bit odd to me.

@LunaLuver, perhaps he had something else on? Just because people are twins, it doesn’t mean they have to go around together all their lives!

very very lucky students, i wish i had met them. In response to valeria – johanna: i think shes totally right – why should james and oliver follow each other around just because they’re twin, more specific – WEASLEY twins?? I think it’s perfectly fine
