  Duke of Edinburgh's Award

 

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is run under four areas – Expedition, Voluntary, Physical and Skill. Students who opt to go for this Award, do so as part of their time table within the schools working week.

For the expedition students learn  a combination of camp craft, map reading, navigation and orienteering, all in preparation for completing two expeditions in unfamiliar territory. They learn how to be totally dependent on each other and their map, as they navigate around the fields and mountains of the Lake District and North Wales completely independently.

Students in the school get involved and design fundraising projects for their voluntary work. They raise money for various charities both locally and nationally. Students have washed cars and completed sponsored events to help complete this part of the award.

The physical section demands that students complete an activity of their choosing for a total of 10 hours. Students generally pick their own activity to fully embrace and motivate themselves in completing this section.

Finally the skill section required the students to ‘learn something new’. This can be wide ranging, from knitting to go-carting, horse riding to golf. Again the students have a huge say in what skill they do, and in some cases have used their fundraising monies to help pay for the activity.
