duke of edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award has become a huge part of Wickersley School & Sports College in recent years. We have hundreds of students enroll each year at the different levels of the award. 

We offer opportunities for students to take part in the Bronze award in Year 9 and 10, the Silver award in Year 11 and the Gold award in 6th Form. 

The award sees students develop themselves through the different sections; Physical, Skill,  Volunteering and Expedition:

  • Physical: Students are encouraged to develop themselves in a sport, physical activity, Dance or fitness activity.
  • Skill: Developing your practical and social skills in an area of interest. 
  • Volunteering: Giving your time to help individuals or groups in the community. 
  • Expedition: Expeditions take place each summer. Bronze Expeditions are for 2 days and 1 night and take place in the Peak District. Silver Expeditions are for 3 days and 2 nights and also take place in the Peak District. Gold Expeditions are for 4 days and 3 nights and usually take place in the Lake District.
