Duke of Edinburgh Award

Developing skills for life

Duke of Edniburgh picAt the end of Yr 9 all pupils have the opportunity to undergo expedition training and carry out a practice overnight expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award in the Mendip Hills. Those who wish can complete the Bronze Award in Yr 10 and go on to the Silver Award in Yr 11, with expeditions on Exmoor and in the Brecon Beacons. Gold Award should start for Yr 12, with three nights of camping in locations such as the Lake District or Snowdonia.

As well as taking part in expeditions to develop self reliance and perseverance in the outdoors, the Award scheme encourages young people to learn new skills, take part in a physical activity and volunteer in the local community. Pupils have taught Sunday School, raised funds for charity, helped with first aid at school events and done odd jobs for older members of the village community as part of their volunteering.

To find out more about the award scheme, please visit the D of E website.
