Hard work paid off as five Wisbech Grammar School pupils picked up the highest honour you can claim on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Gold awards have been handed to 18 year-olds Patrick Rusman, Ian Gitonga, Rakhee Keshwara, Samuel Eales and Callum Ward. As part of the award, they completed an expedition in the Lake District.
In total, 160 pupils at the school are taking part in the scheme, with more than 60 participants aged 14 and above gaining an award since September.
Head of outdoor learning Dominic Garfoot said: “I am delighted that so many of our pupils have committed themselves to activities outside the classroom and within the local community.
“Holding a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award says a great deal about the personal qualities of these pupils.
