Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award


The Ridgeway School & Sixth Form College fully embraces the Duke of Edinburgh award and has a vibrant cohort of students completing all levels of the award.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award, comprises three stages – Bronze, Silver and Gold, participating in activities including Skills, Physical Activities, Volunteering and an Expedition. Completion of the Award will help give you the skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities. The Award recognises commitment, endeavour and a capacity for teamwork, whether that be in newly discovered activities ahead or things you already do. In completing the award, you’ll make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.
Currently we take expeditions for Bronze to Cranham in the Cotswolds, Silver to Exmoor National Park in Somerset and the Gold award is assessed on the Brecon Beacons in Wales.
We strongly encourage students to get involved and take up this challenge.
