A former King’s Ely pupil has been presented with a gold Duke of Edinburgh award.
Daniel Hayes, who completed his bronze and silver DofE awards whilst studying at King’s Ely, was given the award at a regional ceremony held at Buckingham Palace.
Principal Sue Freestone and Martin Bray, King’s Ely’s assistant director of outdoor education and DofE manager, were also presented with an award naming the school as a directly licenced centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
It means the school now holds its own licence to deliver DofE programmes to its students.
The DofE award is a personal development programme for young people aged between 14 and 24 where participants choose a programme of activities in four sections: physical, skills, volunteering and an expedition.
