The Duke of Edinburgh Awards

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme over the last academic year has been highly successful with 28 students completing their award at either Bronze or Silver level which is a fantastic result.

Running the award takes a huge amount of time and organisation, not just for every aspect of making sure the expeditions are safe, but the administration needed to get all 28 students to do and evidence all components of their award. 

Not to mention the many happy hours we spent putting kit away on a Sunday morning and cleaning the dried mud from off, and under, every exam table in the hall… Cherished memories… All this was down to Chris and his enthusiasm, dedication the scheme and maintaining the kit over the many years that he did it. 

Thanks for everyone who made this a success: arranging cover, access to the school site on Saturdays, driving the van plus many other things to make the scheme feasible.
