A school mural celebrating Marcus Rashford has won the approval of the Manchester United and England footballer himself.
Created by street artist MurWalls, the mural will greet at Highgate Wood School pupils when they return for the new school year in September.
The aim is to inspire young people to “look at what we can do when we come together” – something Marcus Rashford has said during his campaigns to ensure children received meals during the pandemic and boost reading.
The school said it is “delighted that so many have responded so well” to the mural. It features Marcus Rashford wearing England kit.
The idea came from assistant headteacher Jen Burniston, who was in charge of the slimmed down “small school” during the height of the pandemic.
