Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award


On Tuesday 20 September, former student Shane Baybutt along with Mr Johnson, Mr Smith and Mrs Sherman were invited to attend the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award presentation at St James Palace.

It was a fitting setting for an inspirational event. Kristian Thomas gave an uplifting speech about the journey and experiences that have culminated in his Olympic medal in gymnastics. The students, and staff both met Kristian and HRH The Earl of Wessex.

D of E is a fantastic experience for our students to be involved in. Shane has worked extremely hard to complete his Gold Award with many expeditions starting from Year 9 through to sixth form. Well done to Mercia Woods and Liam Hardman who also completed their award.
