Duke of Edinburgh

We offer our Year 10 students the opportunity to take the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Bronze Level and if successful to continue onto Silver in Year 11. All Sixth form students can complete the Award at Gold Level.

The Award Scheme offers young people a challenge through a balanced programme of activities, in which they are encouraged to serve others, acquire new skills and experience adventure.

The Award must be undertaken in the participant’s leisure time. It is non-competitive, being based on individual improvement and achievement, reflecting personal choice, initiative and perseverance.

Participants can develop existing interests or try something new. Whatever they choose to do for their award, they can find enjoyment, excitement and satisfaction. Please note only pupils who have completed their Bronze award can take the Silver award.

All information will be posted on this page of the website regarding expeditions in due course.
