On the 18th of November 2013 11 pupils and 3 staff were honoured to attend a Royal Reception at Buckingham Palace to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Dr Who.
Unfotunately, cameras were not permitted inside the palace.
All children had taken part in a Dr Who themed competition at school. Very well done to Emily who was overall winner of the art competition. She was fortunate enough to have her art work mounted on a canvas and signed by all of the Doctors. Emily also individually met the Countess of Wessex to discuss her winning entry executing a perfect curtsy under extreme pressure ! All of the children had an opportunity to speak with the Countess and to mingle with famous actors & actresses.
It was a very memorable day for all involved. The children were a real credit to Gladstone and their parents.
