The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The College is a firm advocate of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award.  We currently offer the Bronze (in the Remove / Year 10) and Gold Award. (in Lower and Upper 6th years).

The expedition training for the Bronze award forms part of our Wednesday afternoon ‘Outreach’ programme whilst the Gold award expedition training is undertaken largely at weekends and during holidays. 

Qualifying or assessed expeditions have taken place in the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, Dartmoor and, for the Bronze award, the New Forest.
