Duke of Edinburgh's Award
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme is a programme designed to facilitate the personal development of young people aged 14-25. It is designed to be enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. Warwick School is delighted to be able to offer boys the opportunity to take part in the D of E Scheme.
The Award operates at three levels: bronze, silver and gold.
Warwick School currently runs silver and gold levels.
Silver is started in the Upper Fifth, and completed by the end of the academic year.
Gold is started in the Lower Sixth, and should be completed by the end of the Upper Sixth.
The levels are run on similar principles, with different sections. Both silver and gold include Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Expedition sections; gold also has a Residential Project section, which is not required for silver. Expeditions are offered both in the UK and overseas in the Pyrenees and Alps.
Duke of Edinburgh's Award News
A presentation evening was held on Wednesday 28th September 2011 to provide parents/pupils with an insight in to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, some of the changes that are going to be phased in and what is expected of the boys.
The aim was to provide both parents and pupils an in-depth look at what the Award is all about and how it works, especially the switch to the eDofE system for registering and recording activities. Also covered were the various sections within the Award with explanations on how the Expedition Sections are going to work from September 2011 onwards.
This information evening was designed to provide an insight into the commitment that the boys make once they have signed up to take part and an opportunity to ask any questions that parents/pupils may have.
