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 70 pupils in Year 10 working towards achieving their Bronze award.
All pupils 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, pupils must complete a volunteering, skill and physical activity (each for a minimum of three months) and take part in two two-day expeditions.
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.
Whilst we do not currently offer the Silver or Gold award, many of our pupils have gone on to complete this award outside of school and we can offer advice to pupils wishing to do so.
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, pupils will meet new people, learn new skills, develop their physical fitness and make a difference to their local community.
