Extra Curricular


The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme challenges young people aged 14 to 25 throughout the world to serve others, acquire new skills, experience adventure and make new friends. At Lady Margaret School we have around 60 students in Year 10 working towards achieving their Bronze award. 

All students in Year 9 are encouraged to apply, bearing in mind the extra time commitment during the first year of their GCSEs. In order to achieve their award, students must complete a volunteering, skill and physical activity (each for a minimum of three months) and take part in a three-day practice expedition and a two-day qualifying expedition in the North Downs, Surrey.

The expeditions are run by Resilience Education and Adventure. They will train and then assess the girls for their expedition. More information on the expeditions can be found on their website

We also offer the Silver award, bi-annually, to students in Year 11 and 12. this builds on skills learnt at Bronze level and helps pupils make the step to the Gold Award. 

Why should I do it? The Duke of Edinburgh Award is widely recognised in education and employment as it requires commitment, teamwork and self-discipline. It is also a fun, rewarding and challenging experience that creates many new opportunities and memorable moments.

By taking part in the award, students will meet new people, learn new skills, develop their physical fitness and make a difference to their local community.
