Year 12 student and Cadet Sergeant, Harry D, has been appointed as a Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet – the highest honour that can be achieved by a Cadet in any of the forces.
The Army Cadet Force is a national voluntary youth organisation that provides challenging, military, adventurous and community activities. Those who complete their training programme and make a significant contribution to the life of their local community are selected as Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets.
On Thursday 6 September, Harry attended Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant Cadet Presentation where he was recognised as one of only 11 cadets from 8,500 across the whole Yorkshire and Humber region, to be awarded the Lord-Lieutenant's Certificate.
Head of School, Richard Williman, attended the presentation, and said: ”The position of Lord lieutenant's Cadet is a highly prized one within the Cadet force and we are delighted that Harry's hard work and commitment has led to him being selected for such a prestigious position. We wish him well for the forthcoming year and look forward to hearing about his work in this role.”
