Ten dedicated Wisbech Grammar School Sixth Form pupils have achieved the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, the highest number of gold awards in one year ever recorded by the school.
Victoria Murphy (Wisbech), Maddie Booth (Wisbech), Mollie Allen (March), Lee Clarke (Wisbech), Ed Page (Wisbech), James Greenhalgh (King’s Lynn), Ben Trundley (King’s Lynn), Jordan Reeve (Spalding), Ethan Jutsum (Heacham), and James Thompson (King’s Lynn) completed the five sections - volunteering, physical, skill, residential and an expedition in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District or the French Alps - the culmination of up to 18 months of commitment.
Mr Dominic Garfoot, head of outdoor education, said: “These pupils have demonstrated a whole range of skills that future employers and universities will hold in high regard, which combined with academic qualifications will give them a head start in the competitive jobs market beyond school. We are extremely proud of their achievements.”
