Duke Of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award at EGA School is a nationally recognised qualification that is highly regarded amongst Colleges, Universities and Employers.

Here at EGA we offer Bronze award in Year 10, we have a maximum of 35 places so your daughter will have to apply to be able to participate. 

The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh programme is broken down into 4 sections:

  • Volunteering

  • Physical recreation

  • Skill

  • Expedition

Students must complete a minimum of 3 months activity for two sections and 6 months for one.

The award consists of regular meetings as a group and with their EGA Mentor as well as an hour dedicated to each activity every week.  Lastly, they will also need to plan, lead and organise a camping expedition in the British Countryside which will last 2 days and 1 night and will be supported and assessed by EGA staff.  EGA students are  issued a course calendar and are expected to attend regular meetings after school as part of their training for the expeditions so will require a high level of time and commitment. 

Equipment (tents, bags, etc.) and campsite costs are all subsidised by EGA. We do ask for a contribution of £30 and for your daughter to be equipped with walking boots and waterproofs.  

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a fantastic opportunity for EGA students. It will enable them to develop widely recognised life skills and provide them with a sense of adventure. In addition, students will make a difference to other peoples’ lives within the local community through their volunteering. They will become fitter and healthier, make new friends and return with memories which will last a lifetime.
