Pupils from a Breckland school are celebrating Duke of Edinburgh success after battling the elements.
A group of 12 students from the Iceni Academy, Methwold, trekked from Northrepps to Sheringham.
Undeterred by the wind and rain the teenagers walked nearly 20 miles to demonstrate their skills to the Duke of Edinburgh assessors.
Stephen Plume, academy principal, said: “I am delighted for the students in this first initial group. The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is a fantastic way of our students getting recognition of just how incredible they are and the depth of their characters.
“To hear of their success is very encouraging and I look forward to following their progress, and that of future cohorts, as they work towards silver and gold.”
