GCSE students at a Holme Valley school have been learning how to drive.

Twelve pupils from Holmfirth High School have been getting into the driving seat in a bid to learn responsible road habits.

BSM instructors and police officers are taking the youngsters as part of a youth award scheme.

The two-year course runs concurrently with their GCSE years. The school has been organising the scheme for some years now.

It allows pupils to tackle a range of non-academic subjects in different modules over the two years.

"It's quite an alternative course," said Miriam Thomas, youth award scheme teacher at the high school.

"We do a lot of different activities. We go and look at community activities, sport and leisure and expressive arts."
