LONG-serving teacher Terry Clarke made the trip to Buckingham Palace last week.
Earlier this year, the Langley School teacher was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
And now he’s collected the honour - given for services to education - from Her Majesty.
Terry has been at Langley over 35 years. He started when the school first opened in 1974 and is now the only one left from the original teaching staff.
“While I’m proud to receive this award, I’m also immensely proud to be a member of the teaching profession at this school,” said the 62-year-old.
“I’ve had support from so many people and this award isn’t about the achievements of one person.”
Starting as a PE teacher, Terry moved into the arts and then became an assistant headteacher ten-years-ago.
The father-of-two was heavily involved in setting up the Langley Arts Award - which has since been rolled out nationwide.
