Four Highbridge school students achieved the Duke of Edinburgh gold award just weeks after leaving the sixth form.
Catherine Tolley, Katie Bea Robinson, Lilly Keeley Watts and Amber Dinham, who attended The King Alfred School Academy, took part in a four-day expedition in the Brecon Beacons, which culminates the completion of the award.
During a four-year period they completed numerous challenging tasks, with the gold part of the award taking two years.
They will be heading to Buckingham Palace to pick up their award in the New Year.
Head of sixth form, Jonathan Gaskell, said: “We are so proud of the students – the Duke of Edinburgh gold award is a prestigious accolade.
"The girls really worked very hard for their awards and thoroughly deserve their day at Buckingham Palace.
"In a difficult year these four have demonstrated fantastic character and determination.”
