Recently, Ross Gillies has deservedly earned his Gold Level of the Award Scheme. This Level takes 2 years to achieve. Ross started the Award Scheme in Year 10 and completed his Bronze, Silver and Gold Award in the school. Ross has just collected his Gold Award certificate from Buckingham Palace and was presented with his certificate of achievement by Nigel Vardy, who is also referred to as "Mr Frostbite", the famous mountaineer who specialises in walking in cold arctic conditions. Ross achieved his Gold certificate 3 years after his sister Olivia Gillies achieved her award. Both former students have done exceptionally well and have fully deserved their certificates and their day meeting members of the Royal Family. Well done.
