The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a voluntary, non-competitive program of practical, cultural and adventurous activities, designed to support the personal and social development of young people. It offers an individual challenge and encourages young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable things in their free time.

The Award is widely recognised by educationalists and employers. Some of the benefits to young people include developing or discovering: 

  • A sense of achievement
  • New skills and interests
  • Self-confidence and self-reliance
  • Leadership skills and abilities
  • Exciting opportunities
  • Experience of teamwork and decision making
  • Enjoyment 

Over the next few years our aim is to increase the number of students participating in the award, we therefore need to purchase a substantial amount of personal and group kit to ensure all members of the school community who are eligible and wish to take part are able to. So please come along and join us and support our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Student’s.
