Charlotte B from Year 13 , was recently confirmed to be one of the recipients of this year’s ‘Diana Award‘, recognising her voluntary work which goes above and beyond the norm. The Diana Award is awarded to courageous, caring, compassionate young people, transforming the lives of others in the name of Diana, Princess of Wales. There are only 20 recipients of this award every year, so this is a great achievement.

Well done Charlotte
