Duke of Edinburgh's Award

doeSince the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award began in 1956, it has been inspiring, guiding and supporting young people in their self-development, whilst helping them to recognise their achievements. Last year we had over 90 students take part in the award in either bronze or silver with the highest attendance and pass rate in all of Kirklees.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an important part of any Schools’ extracurricular activities and young people can do programmes at three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold. Participants achieve their Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if they’re going for Gold). They’ll find themselves helping people or their community, getting fitter, developing skills and enjoying the adventure of an expedition. For students at Salendine Nook, they have the opportunity to complete the bronze and silver award so they are ready for the gold award when they leave us at the end of year 11.

A Duke of Edinburgh's Award is so much more than a 'pat on the back' for completing their activities. It is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development.  Its balanced programme develops the whole person - mind, body and soul, in an environment of social interaction and team working.
