On Thursday 24 May 2018 seven ex-pupils of Holmfirth High School attended Buckingham Palace to receive their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  Having completed their Bronze Award here at Holmfirth High they then attended Greenhead College where they were able to complete their Gold Award.

During the ceremony the students were able to share with Princess Eugenie how they completed sections of their award along with amusing stories from their 5 day expeditions.  Dave Myers of Hairy Biker fame presented their certificates and answered questions about his travels from both students and parents.

An amazing day was had by all and it is one that both students and parents will never forget.
