Pupils at St Luke's School in Redbourn got the award for studying environmental issues as part of a 10-week sustainability project for SEN (special educational needs) schools called Go4SET.

It was delivered by AkzoNobel and The Institution of Engineering and Technology.

At the end of the course, St Luke's pupils designed an inclusive sports centre, produced a display stand, wrote a report, and presented to industry experts.

Along with another SEN school from Slough, St Luke's participants were given a Bronze Level Industrial Cadets award and a trophy for Favourite Project.
