The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award scheme is available to all pupils from Year 10 upwards. It is a programme aimed to increase pupil resilience and give the pupils a sense of achievement. There are 4 sections to complete: a skill, physical recreation, service and the Adventurous Journey. The pupils can push themselves to take on a new challenge, or they can choose to record an activity that they are already completing. The weekly CCA training sessions culminate with the Adventurous Journey where the pupils are fully self-reliant on a two day overnight hike and camp.

There are 3 levels to the award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. All pupils start on Bronze and have the opportunity to achieve it in six months.
