Long Service Award

Long Service Award

Last week, our Head of Key Stage 4, Carole Riley, was invited to St James Palace to collect a long service award for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.

Miss Riley has been volunteering with the scheme for 21 years covering all three levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold).

Former DHS student Eleanor Erskine was also at the palace to be presented with her Gold Award which she had earned during her time in the Sixth Form at Derby High.

Miss Riley was presented to Prince Edward who congratulated her and thanked her for her commitment over so many years. It was a wonderful day and an excellent way to recognise all of the support Miss Riley has given to students participating in the scheme over the years.
