Duke of Edinburgh
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a voluntary programme intended to develop or improve skills, physical ability and self-motivation in young people. This is done in four different sections – volunteering, physical, skills and expedition.
Participants in the Award are using their own time to follow activities of their own choice. While guidance and support is available from the school the driving force behind ‘The Award’ must be the boys' own self-motivation. For some boys achieving the self-control required to complete the scheme is as big a hurdle as the components themselves. The Award is a non-competitive, equally available, voluntary and highly flexible scheme. There is the opportunity for participants to develop their personal interests, and due to the high demands on their time, boys are recommended to incorporate as many as possible of their existing activities into the Award.

- Any student who was using Mrs. Saunders as their assessor now needs to find a new assessor as she's left the school. This can be a neighbour or family friend - anyone they can show the evidence they've been collecting to and is happy to verify they've completed the agreed commitment.
