The Giant Growing School Boy

The Giant School Boy who is 7ft and still Growing
Bradley Fisher may only be 15 but everyone looks up to him. At just an inch under 7ft, he is two and a half feet taller than the smallest girl in his year, 4ft 6in Zoe McDermott, with whom he is pictured.

Bradley, a pupil at Southlands High School in Chorley, Lancashire, has size 15 feet and is still growing. He overtook his father Robert before he had left primary school. Mr Fisher is just over 6ft, while his wife Amanda is 5ft 10in.

He has just been selected to represent England at under-16 level. ‘I love playing basketball so being tall really helps with that and it gives me an edge,’ said the teenager from Chorley, Lancashire.

And despite having duck for every door frame, Bradley insists nothing tops being of great height. ‘I like being tall,’ said the Year 10 pupil at Southlands. ‘My friends think it’s really good and so do my mum and dad.

The player already has five inches on the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan, who measured in at 6ft 6in.However, he has at least eight inches to grow before being in the running for the title of Britain’s tallest teen.

That accolade is currently held by 19-year-old Paul Sturgess who is 7ft 7in tall.Southlands deputy head Brian Souter said Bradley is the tallest pupil he has taught there in more than 35 years.
