Duke of Edinburgh Award

We are delighted to be supporting our Year 9 students through the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. We have an ambition that all of our students are able to experience this award as we passionately believe that it will help to develop their character, their resilience, and encourage personal discovery, self-reliance and responsibility in an environment of social interaction and team work.

Each participating student needs to complete 3 months of voluntary service in the local community, 3 months of skill development, 3 months of physical exercise and in one of these areas they should extend the time period to 6 months. With an expedition as well, a Bronze Award will be achieved. 

As we are currently in our inaugural year of this award, our students have been busy preparing for their expeditions with training days at the High School Leckhampton.
