The Duke of Edinburgh Award operates at Silver Level for pupils in Year 11.

The school provides a thorough training programme for the Expedition Section of the Award.

Expeditions carried out include:

  • Practice Expedition at BallyPatrick Forest and Fairhead
  • Assessed Expedition in the Mourne Mountains

Pupils undertake responsibility to complete the remaining sections of the award (Skills, Physical Activity and Volunteering) in their own time. The school’s extensive programme of extra-curricular activities should enable all pupils to complete a suitable skill or physical activity.

The opportunity for the Gold Award at Sixth Form is co-ordinated by Miss Tilbury.
