Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a nationally and internationally recognised award, favoured by universities and employers alike.

We have girls who undertake the Bronze Award with us, pushing their boundaries, gaining new skills and enhancing their CVs and university applications.

They grow as individuals, building confidence, independence, responsibility, dedication and commitment.

Students achieve their Bronze Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad

Those who then want to proceed with the Silver and Gold Awards can do so through the London Borough of Hounslow.
