A WOOLSTON student has earned herself a leading role in a remembrance festival at the Royal Albert Hall.

Beth Frank, a sixth form student at King's Leadership Academy in Hillock Lane, is senior cadet at the school, holding the rank of cadet warrant officer.

She is the youngest person to hold this title.

To mark her achievements in the cadet force, she will be travelling to London to take part in the Royal British Legion’s national festival of remembrance held at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday November 10.

Beth will be representing the combined cadet forces (CCF) across all of the UK by fulfilling the role of standard bearer who is responsible for parading the standard for the combined cadet force.

She will be escorted by cadets from Stowe school CCF and Woodbridge school CCF.

A spokesperson for King’s Leadership Academy Warrington said: "Here at King's we believe high quality education is complimented with strong character and leadership traits.

"Students from year seven right through to year 13 are encouraged to become more than just young adults who perform well in exams, but successful citizens who can make the correct life decisions that will impact the future.

"Beth has made everyone here at King's and the community of Warrington proud of her achievements.

"It was only two months ago Beth opened up here GCSE results and achieved eight grade eights and two grade sevens.

"Now she continues to reap the rewards for the tireless effort she applies by fulfilling the role of standard bearer at the Royal Albert Hall."
