DofE Awards Evening

Our Duke of Edinburgh Award programme enjoyed a fantastic awards evening with special guest Gill Burns, MBE, and former Captain of England’s Women’s Rugby Team.

During the evening we celebrated the achievements of 88 of our pupils by awarding them with this highly prestigious award at Bronze, Silver and Gold level.

The evening had a wonderful feeling of friendship, family and success about it. This was due to pupils being surrounded by friends and supported by family. Gill Burns congratulated our pupils on their achievements, whilst challenging them to always think about the next step. This message was backed up by Gill’s stories of her incredible career in Women’s Rugby – a tremendous message of accomplishment and challenge.
