This picture illustrates one of the activities that is possible when taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
The academy runs a Duke of Edinburgh Award programme
Enrolling on the scheme
At the Academy, Year 9 students may enrol for the Bronze Level
DofE, and may complete three of the sections within the year of
enrolment, Volunteering, Skill and Physical. They would then aim to
undertake the Expedition in Year 10.
Year 10's students who have completed their Bronze award
expeditions in April, can transition easily into Silver Award level,
to complete expeditions after their GCSE exams in the Summer of Year
However some Year 10 students may choose to enrol for direct entry
into the Silver Award at the start of the academic school year,
complete Volunteering, Skill and Physical sections within the year to
then undertake their expedition after GCSE exams in Year 11.
Year 11 students who complete their Bronze award, can enrol for
their Silver award to undertake the expedition after their GCSE's.
Year 12 and 13 can enrol at any point to undertake Gold Level
