Darcy School has been awarded the prestigious Gold Medal for School Facilities.
The award comes from the Education Minister, Simon Birmingham, and the Minister for Higher Education, David Willetts, at the school’s commencement ceremony on Friday.
Darcy School is a private school with a number of facilities including the gymnasium, the gym, playground and gym room.
“The School is well equipped for all ages and we are proud to have achieved this award,” Mr Birmingham said.
“We are honoured to be awarded the Gold Medal by our Minister and the Secretary of State for Education.”
Darcy is a place where every student should feel welcome and to feel like they are part of the community, and this award is a further tribute to this important foundation for our school community.
“The school has also been awarded a prestigious ‘Gold Star’ certificate for its efforts to help disadvantaged students and its ongoing commitment to diversity.
The Gold Medal is the highest award given by the Department of Education to an organisation or person for a positive outcome in a matter of public interest.
The school was named in the 2015 Equality in Education report.
Darbury School has always been a positive place for students and the school is proud to continue to serve as such.
The graduation ceremony will take place at Darcy Academy, which was built in 1864.
Darsey School is located in Darcy, North Yorkshire, and is the second largest private school in the county.
In 2016, the school was ranked second in the UK for overall school performance in terms of pupil numbers.”
This is a very exciting occasion for our students and our school family, and we will do everything in our power to make this a memorable one,” said the Principal of Darcy Primary School, Karen Williams.”
I know this award will be very well received by the students and staff of Darbury School and their families, and I am confident the school will do well in the upcoming months.
