Duke of Edinburgh Award

All our year 9 students have the chance to take the nationally recognised Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. This challenging scheme allows our girls to explore their true potential by attempting a whole set of new activities.

Year 10 students who wish to take up Bronze can do so and we offer Silver to all Year 10 and Year 11 students who have completed Bronze.

We offer all our Bronze awardees the opportunity to become involved in training new Bronze participants as part of their Silver volunteering.

 

The award comprises four sections: skills, physical, volunteering and an expedition. We help prepare all our girls for the final expedition where they have to be fully self-sufficient, carrying their own kit including, tent, cooker, food and water. Each team is responsible for navigating a set route and visiting various checkpoints.
