In an extract from his new book 'Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey', which is published in the Daily Mirror newspaper, he says: "I was not stimulated by school whatsoever. In almost every lesson I thought, 'This is pointless. What am I going to do with Biology or Chemistry?' I was sure that I could find a job in music. I could make tea at Island Records or be a studio hand, or I could end up being a songwriter."
