He attended Harris Academy, South Norwood and would more often than not run into trouble in school and even got suspended at some point but he was a bright kid.

He got introduced to the world of rap and hip-hop at the age of 11 when he would often have burst ups with other rappers who were even older than he was at a local club in the area he grew up. Upon his graduation from school, Stormzy started working in different spheres – an apprenticeship with Leamington Spa and also, working in quality assurance for an oil refinery in Southampton which lasted for about two years.
