Rugby Free Secondary School were very excited to announce the launch of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award this year for the current Year 9 cohort.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award, founded in 1956 by Prince Phillip, is delivered in over 130 countries worldwide. The award aims to inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and recognise their achievements. It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in.
The award requires young people to complete four sections:- Physical, Skill, Volunteering and Outdoor Expedition (two days, one night). Students will be expected to complete two sections for three months, one section for six months and a practice and final expedition.
Students have a wide range of activities to choose from to complete each section. Ideas can be found on the DofE display board in school or by typing ‘Duke of Edinburgh Programme Ideas’ into Google Search. Rugby Free has a variety of extracurricular activities on offer which would allow students to complete all of their sections with help from school.
At Rugby Free, students will have the opportunity to complete their Bronze Award in year 9, Silver Award in year 10 and Gold Award in year 12.
