Duke of Edinburgh





The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is committed to providing for young people an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development, which is of the highest quality and the widest reach.

At Orchard School we begin the Bronze award in Year 10 and pupils have the opportunity to begin the Silver award in Year 11.


The scheme gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills including cookery, basic first aid and numerous sporting activities. The expedition section is completed by a two day hike in the local area.
