Duke of Edinburgh Royal Visit

On Wednesday 11th March 2020, young people involved in The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (D-of-E) from both New Fosseway and Bridge Learning Campus spent time with HRH The Earl of Wessex, The High Sheriff of Bristol and the Lord Mayor of Bristol.  It was a great inclusive morning and involved our young people and staff greeting The Earl on his arrival by waving flags as well being able to showcase skills including building tents. The Earl spoke to a number of students to hear about their D-of-E experiences and joined in with the tent building!


The visit was planned to thank local schools and organisations who run the D-of-E for their young people and showcase how doing the D-of-E could benefit more young people, schools, business and youth organisations in the area who are not yet involved.  


On the day we were also joined by ITV and Bristol TV; film crew's followed the morning and interviewed one of our students for the local news!
