Developing the Whole Child

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh award enables a young person to develop their mind, body and soul in a non-competitive environment.  The award has the ability to elevate people’s self-confidence, skills and aspirations.
In school we currently have 100 pupils involved across all three levels (bronze, Silver and Gold).  We are one of the few schools in the area who offer all three levels and we believe it provides participants with essential life skills.  Through completing the various sections that make up the award participants develop:
Self confidence
Respect and understanding of people from different backgrounds, cultures and walks of life.
A sense of responsibility
New talents and abilities
An understanding of strengths and weakness
New relationships
Our staff are highly trained and provide each young person the support they need to achieve their full potential.
