1D star wasn't into homework

Louis Tomlinson wasn’t a model student before his days topping the charts with One Direction.

The singer’s former head of year at The Hayfield School has revealed that the 1D star didn’t enjoy swatting up for lessons.

‘He is a very charming chap but he wasn’t a great fan of doing academic work,’ says Jenni Lambert.

But despite Louis‘ lack on interest in learning, it seems there was one area where he let his talents shine.

‘He was a bit of a rogue,’ Jenni tells the Daily Star, ‘but he absolutely loved performing.’
