Henrietta, Gwyneth, and Vy have received certificates from Buckingham Palace in recognition of their completion of the Bronze Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA) and we have other pupils who are very close to completing the award too. Vy has also now completed the Silver award and is looking forward to receiving her second certificate from Buckingham Palace in the post soon.
