Duke of Edinburgh Award

Our Duke of Edinburgh Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It does not matter who you are or where you are from, you just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise that there is more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.                           

Here at The Bishop Wand Church of England School we fully endorse the ethos of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and have participated for many years. We feel that it is important to give our students an opportunity to undertake this challenge. This year our students have grasped this opportunity fully with 108 students from Year 10 participating on the Bronze Award and 68 Year 11 students on the Silver Award. We are extremely proud of our young people, and they in return are proud of the new skills they have obtained during the program, skills they will carry with them throughout their life.
