Learning without limits

Duke of Edinburgh

Childwall Sports and Science Academy offer the Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards.The Duke of Edinburgh Award programme starts in Year 9 with the Bronze Award. Once you have completed this, you can enrol for the Silver Award in Year 10, and in Year 12 the Gold Award is available.

A Duke of Edinburgh Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

You achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five for the Gold Award):

  • Volunteering
  • Physical
  • Skills
  • Expedition

You’ll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing new skills, going on an expedition, and taking part in a residential activity (Gold Award only).

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing and, along the way, you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
