Ed, 23, recently revealed he didn't do his school homework because he was busy trying to make music.
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.
''I didn't do homework and I remember not turning up to school for a long time. I had a lot of detentions and suspensions, which didn't go down well.''
