Thought of the Week

If any of you lacks wisdom you should ask God, who gives generously.

James 1:5

Duke of Edinburgh Award

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award – Year 10 and 11

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is the world’s leading achievement award for young people, and is highly regarded by Colleges, Universities and Employers.  It encourages young people to develop independence, commitment, increase their skill set, and improve their leadership and teamwork through being involved in a personalised programme of activities. The school fully supports the award and recognises its unique value for developing skills and attributes in young people.

The Award is split into Four sections; Volunteering, Physical, Skill, and Expedition. It takes approximately 6 months to complete and requires regular commitment to various activities. Your son/daughter will need to find ways with support from myself and school mentors to fulfil the Volunteering, Physical and Skill section of the award.
