Gold for Staff and Students at the Palace

Awards were presented to six students and two teachers during a garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the latest successes of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
PE teacher Laura Wright joined students Josie Maybury, Lizzie Townsend, Ewan Bell, Izzie Price, Kiran Connelly and Eleanor Buswell to collect their Gold awards at the palace. As well as completing Gold herself, Laura also helps students to work towards their own awards.
Head of Sixth Form Margaret Hawksworth was presented with a special award to congratulate her on 38 years' service to the scheme. In that time, thousands of students have completed Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards at Ashby School.
