Duke of Edinburgh

Students from Year 9 at Shuttleworth now have the opportunity to carry out the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.

The Duke of Edinburgh programme is a chance for students to have an impact on their own life and those around them.  No matter what background, the students can set up a programme that suits them.

Based on four sections:

  • Volunteering
  • Physical
  • Skills
  • Expedition
  • Students must complete a minimum of three months activity for the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections.

They must also plan, practice and undertake a two day (one night) expedition.

It will usually take students at least six months to complete the Bronze programme.
