HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

To celebrate the achievements of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, we are pleased to share this image from the school archives of Prince Philip’s visit to Ashlyns School on 30 October 1959.  The visit was arranged to celebrate the students’ involvement in the newly formed Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.  We have a lovely account of the day from a student who was one of the first participants of the scheme.  Prince Philip toured the school, spoke to students and was intrigued as to the nature of the Ribena drink he was offered as a refreshment!
