On Wednesday 3rd September a Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award presentation ceremony held at Sandringham saw 59 successful candidates from around Norfolk being presented with their brooches or badges.

Our school was very well represented as eleven of our girls had achieved this level of the award – more than from any other Norfolk school!imagePicture: Ian Burt

To earn their awards the participants had taken part in weekly physical activities and a gruelling expedition, learnt new skills, undertaken a residential visit and volunteered to help in their local community or for charities. Four of our girls were able to attend and were very proud to receive their brooches from inspirational paralympian silver medallist Mel Clarke, who told them to “use this award on your CVs ….the experience you have gained during these awards is invaluable”. The evening concluded with a reception.

Well done to the girls who achieved this level:

Sophie Amey, Holly Barrett, Kelsey Borrer, Rina Chan, Charlotte Dransfield, Sophie Gascoyne-Richard, Hannah Gaskin, Kirstie Huang, Daniele Marta, Isabel Shaw, Shih-Lin Tseng.

The girls will be going to St James’ Place in London at a later date to receive their certificates from the Duke of Wessex.
