Congratulations to Jack, Toby and Abby, our sixth form students, who were invited to Buckingham Palace in May to receive their Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards.

In order to achieve the Gold DofE award, students have to complete the following:

  • 12 months of volunteering work
  • 12-18 months of physical and skills
  • Qualifying expedition (4 days and 3 nights) plus a practice expedition
  • Residential (5 days and 4 nights) – a shared activity with new people

We are so proud of them – a fabulous achievement!

Here are some pictures of them at Buckingham Palace.
