Presenters- James and Oliver Phelps, Actors

“Doing the Harry Potter films meant I couldn’t do my DofE so I’m jealous of you all collecting your Gold Awards today. Through doing your DofE, you’ve gained many new skills and experiences. I hope in the future you’ll take these skills forward and you’ll look at your Award with much pride. Congratulations!” James Phelps

“A challenge I faced was taking part in the London Triathlon. After perseverance and much training I managed to complete it. Crossing the line and getting that medal around my neck was a real personal achievement and proud moment for me, much like you all collecting your Gold Awards today. Well done to you all.” Oliver Phelps

“It’s a real honour for me to be here today.

You’ve started with your Gold Award and you’ll move on in your life but hold onto your achievements and welcome the challenges. Congratulations to you all, I’m really proud to see you here today.”
