Beaumont Leys School gets royal visit by Prince Edward
A Leicester school has received recognition from His Royal Highness, The Earl of Wessex, for its involvement in The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Prince Edward visited Beaumont Leys School, which has one of the highest completion rates for the Bronze Award in the East Midlands.
Assistant head teacher Peter Kirkbride said the students had gained various skills from the programme.
The prince is the patron of the scheme, a role he has taken over from his father Prince Phillip.
Liz Logie, the school's head teacher, said: "He was very aware that for each child this was a special memory."
During his trip to Leicestershire, Prince Edward also visited Shree Sanatan Mandir and Community Centre in Belgrave, South Leicestershire College in South Wigston, and the Hinckley Club for Young People.
