The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme has been operating for over 60 years and offers fun, adventure and challenge to anyone aged between 14-24.

The progressive Awards come at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels and are all about pushing boundaries, gaining new skills and enhancing CVs and university applications.

The Friary School has a well-established Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and last year we had 10 students successfully complete their Gold Awards, and 32 Bronze Awards, all of whom completed the expedition section of the award, and 15 who have already completed the whole award.

This school year sees 55 students from across Y10-Y13 undertaking the Silver Award and weekly training sessions are building up to a practice expedition in March / April.

This will then be proceeded by the formally assessed expedition in early May followed by a formal presentation to DofE leaders.

There are regular updates on the school website and Twitter account through the year and if you have any further enquiries about our Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme then please contact Angie Brough (Duke of Edinburgh Leader) via school reception (Tel – 01543 267 400).
