The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an incredibly popular scheme undertaken by hundreds of thousands of young people nationally every year. It is highly regarded by employers, colleges and universities and gives students an opportunity to develop and experience new things.


Each participant chooses a programme that suits their individual interests. The award consists of 4 main sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skill and an Expedition. Many of the activities chosen for each section, the participant already takes part in outside of school, so the Duke of Edinburgh Award is a great way to give recognition for this effort and commitment. Alternatively, it’s a great opportunity for participants to learn a new skill. Each section needs to be signed off with a written report by an assessor who is not a relative.


At Farmor’s we offer all available levels; Bronze (Y9), Silver (Y10) and Gold (Y12). Please find more information, including current cohort letters and important dates for each level by following the correct link on the left hand side.
