John of Gaunt pupil Robbie Millar said he is glad to be back at school this week after a miracle recovery from a horrific accident.
The 15-year-old was left with severe head injuries and partially paralysed, after he was in collision with a car as he jumped off the school bus near his home in Cold Harbour, Trowbridge, in April.
Flown by Wiltshire Air Ambulance to Frenchay Hospital for emergency surgery, he then spent two weeks in a coma at Bristol Royal Infirmary.
Now recovering and back in Year 11 for morning lessons only, Robbie said: “It’s good to be back and seeing my friends again.”
Tutor Andrea Perks, who visited Robbie in hospital, said his tutor group will now be raising money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, and headteacher Andy Packer: “It really is like a miracle that Robbie is back with us after surviving such a traumatic incident and I am very proud of the support he has received from staff and Mrs Perks.”
