Duke of Edinburgh Award


As part of our ongoing commitment to provide WCA students with opportunities to enhance and develop their communication, independence, confidence and life skills we offer all year 9, 10 and 6th Form pupils the chance to enrol on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

There are 3 levels to the award. These are Bronze, Silver and Gold. At Bronze level pupils need to complete four sections to pass the award. The minimum amount of time it would take to complete is 6 months, increasing in time with each award.

The sections are: Physical Recreation, Skills, Volunteering, Expedition.
