Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards

NBHS will soon be launching the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Our aim is to offer the Bronze Award for a limited number of current S2 learners, for them to work through and complete all sections whilst in S3. There are 3 sections of The Award: Skills, Service and Physical Recreation, alongside the expedition section and all must be completed to gain the Bronze Award.

A full launch will happen during an S2 assembly before the Easter holidays, and letters will be coming home with further details after this. If we are oversubscribed then we will pull names out of a hat, and create a waiting list.

In future years, we aim to offer Silver and Gold levels but this will be dependent on learner uptake and support from the wider community. If you interested in getting involved with helping us run this award in any way, and particularly if you have any outdoor qualifications, please get in touch through the school office.

Watch this space for more information!
