Duke of Edinburgh’s

DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S AWARD SCHEME

Many young people find achieving a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award life changing, a fun adventure and major challenge where there are three progressive award levels – bronze, silver and gold. There are a wide range of activities offering endless possibilities for our students as they enter year 10 at age 14.

Millions of young people across the United Kingdom have already taken part in the world’s leading youth achievement award, extending personal boundaries, learning new skills, and giving another way to enhance university applications via their personal statements.

Participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s scheme gives students opportunities to challenge themselves, develop team work and leadership skills and have fun.  For many of our students what they experience beyond the classroom is as important and life enriching as what they learn from their academic work.

Pupils' experiences are enriched by an extensive range of visits and extra-curricular activities, locally, regionally and internationally.
