Over 150 students have been encouraged to get involved in the DofE Awards at Bronze, Silver and Gold level since Denbigh School became a Directly Licensed Centre. They have benefited from learning vital skills for life and work, such as confidence, commitment, resilience and team work.
Members of the Royal Family; HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex, congratulated those that were in attendance at the presentation for their participation and support of the millions of young people in the UK and across the globe who, since its foundation in 1956, have achieved DofE Awards.
British Perfumer, Jo Malone, presented Headteacher Andy Squires with a plaque to commemorate Denbigh's commitment to DofE, whilst praising the School and the other DofE centres for their resilience, creativity and passion.
Delighted with the award, Mr Squires said:
"It is an honour for the school that we have been recognised in this way and in such beautiful surroundings as the Buckingham Palace Gardens. The students that take part in the DofE awards are encouraged to independently choose activities and challenges that help them develop as individuals and teach them valuable skills for the future."
