The students have shown exemplary communication skills whilst being a part of the words for work programme, where volunteers have been helping them to learn about the workplace. On this day Edvard, Mahnoor and Fausta will also have the exciting opportunity to meet HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, who is the guest of honour at this event. The Academy is extremely proud of their achievements and hope that they enjoy this fantastic opportunity.

Eduard said the following about the day; "It was a complete once in a lifetime experience and HRH The Duchess was very nice and asked us all about our favourite books.  I was nervous at first, but it was a brilliant day and experience."
