Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme with Mrs Langston for Year 10
Are you a determined person, willing to persevere with challenges that will test your skills and abilities to the limit? Are you prepared to push yourself to be the best you can be? You could be part of a national scheme, recognised by universities and employers, working towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award!
You will need to contribute towards your community through volunteering, stretch your physical skills by participating in a sport or physical activity, undertake a local expedition with a camp-out (which we will train for and plan together), and learn a new recreational hobby or pastime. Some of this may be completed through the enrichment clubs now on offer in school, and some you will need to undertake in your own time at home or in clubs you do outside school. This is open to every energetic and enthusiastic person in Year 10 and we will be on hand to support you throughout your new challenge.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award can’t be an enrichment activity on its own, as we won’t meet every week, but remember – all of the activities listed in this guide could be of great help to you in gaining the Award, so think about which grab your attention and start planning how you can join in.
