Bronze Award

Duke of Edinburgh

Bronze Award
Who: Year 10 (KS4)
When: From October, annually
DofE Manager: Mr J Stephenson:

We currently have 56 Bronze Award students in Year 10 that are working on their personal targeted programme of challenging themselves to learn and develop new skills, physical and volunteering goals over a 3 and 6 month period of time. Students are completing these sections, alongside their expedition training, in preparation for their two-day practise and qualifying expeditions in the Peak District.

Students have set targets to develop their skills in different areas, these include:

  • Cooking
  • Singing & acting
  • Learning a language
  • Cheerleading
  • Musical instrument
  • Martial arts
  • Sports clubs

Some have also volunteered to help others through leading at various sports clubs, scout and cadet organisations.

Students participating in the Bronze Award recently raised £499.50 for the charity 'When You Wish Upon a Star.'  The Year 10 pupils are part of 'Group Engage' and raised the money as part of their volunteering challenge by selling cakes and charity wristbands at School.  The charity grants the wishes of children living with a life-threatening illness.
