Duke of Edinburgh Award (May 2019)

The Bronze Award is offered to pupils in Year 9. Participants engage in a skill, sport and volunteering activity for a three month period and then choose one in which they would like to carry on for a further three months. They also take part in a two-day, one-night expedition to the Ashdown Forest. Prior to this they must take part in a practice expedition and training day in which they receive training in first aid, navigation and camp craft.

(The current Bronze cohort have competed their practice expedition successfully and will take part in the qualifying expedition on the 2nd-3rd July)

The Silver Award is offered to pupils in Year 10. Again participants engage in a skill, sport and volunteering activity. Volunteering and one of the other sections are undertaken for six months while the remaining section is undertaken for three months. Participants also take part in a three-day, two-night expedition. Prior to this they must have undertaken a practice expedition and training day. We intend our Silver expedition to be by canoe or kayak in Snowdonia National Park.
