Duke of Edinburgh Award

We are fortunate to be able to offer students between the ages of 13 and 18 the opportunity to complete the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award while they are studying at the College.


By participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, you will improve a range of skills like leadership, teamwork and independence. You will learn new skills, which will develop confidence; you might find a new passion for something you enjoy. You will get fitter. You will find yourself helping people or the community. You will build resilience. The awards will enhance your CV but more importantly than that you will develop skills you did not know you had and learn a lot about yourself. Employees and Universities recognise the Duke of Edinburgh Award and know the commitment and determination you have to have to achieve it.


Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing. You can also be recognised for the wide range of activities you may already be involved in. In addition, along the way, you will pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you throughout the rest of your life.


At the end of year 8, you will be invited to start your Bronze Award at the beginning of year 9 and your Silver Award at the beginning of year 10 and then the Gold Award will be offered in year 11 when students turn 16, this will then continue into post 16.


If you would like further information please contact our Duke of Edinburgh Award Manager, Mr D Semmons.
