The school actively promotes the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is an internationally recognised programme for young people, building their skills to equip them for life and work. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, become physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development. The bronze award is offered to students in Year 9 and the silver award is offered in Year 10. Both awards are extremely popular with students and staff.
Each year an assembly is given to publicise the award and to show students how to apply. Our Duke of Edinburgh Co-ordinator this year is Chris Belcher (firstname.lastname@example.org).
