Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award 2019/2020

Posted on: 27/06/2019

Next academic year we will once again be offering the Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award to Year 9 and 10 pupils. The training sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings after school and will run from 3.00pm to 5.00pm (start date Tuesday 8th October 2019). Training sessions will cover the practical skills required for the Expedition section of the Award, such as; map reading/compass work, tent pitching, and basic first aid.

Pupils will also receive guidance on the three other sections required for the Bronze Award. Benefits The award is widely recognised by employers and people involved in education. Some of the benefits to young people include developing self-confidence and self-reliance; gaining a sense of achievement and a sense of responsibility; discovering new skills, interests and talents and developing leadership skills and abilities. They can also discover exciting opportunities; make new friends; experience teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making; increase their motivation; enhance their self-esteem and develop their communication skills. They will also, of course, have fun! 

Any pupils who are interested please pick up a letter form Mr Fox in school or print one off from the website.
