Nathan Wilkinson, 11DGL and Owen Wilkinson, 11NB are members of the Army Cadet Force, which along with the other Cadet Forces, gives young people further opportunities to develop their leadership potential, team working skills and community responsibilities.

They have done extremely well and as they have proved to be two of the best cadets of their year, they have been selected to be two of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets for 2017 in Tyne and Wear.

This is a great and coveted accolade for Nathan and Owen and one which they richly deserve. Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy are extremely proud of their achievements.
