Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

We are pleased to announce that all of our students who signed up for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, have now completed this and received their Bronze Award. Unfortunately, students were not able to take part in an expedition, however they still learnt the necessary skills by setting an in-house expedition, including erecting a tent.

As part of the Bronze award, some of the students favourite activities were volunteering in shops, making visors for local care homes and working on their Physical Education by trying out new sports, such as table tennis and swimming. They also developed their drama and cooking skills.

The students are thrilled to have received their awards, certificates and merchandise. Four determined students have gone on to start their Silver Award now.

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
