It has been a record-breaking year for pupils at Sir Christopher Hatton Academy who have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Awards.

Two students achieved silver awards and a record 13 completed their bronze awards. They spent months doing a range of activities including peer buddying, helping in charity shops, cricket and judo coaching, literacy mentoring and providing music tuition.

The school’s DofE co-ordinator Will Morton said: “We’re really proud of our students who have achieved these awards, which are a testament to their hard work this year.”
