Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme has been delivered at Windsor High School and Sixth Form for many years.
It is a nationally recognised award that perfectly illustrates the school’s commitment to offer high quality extra-curricular provision to complement excellent academic attainment.
The components of the award also reflect the school’s desire to equip students with relevant life skills that will also serve them well as they make their way toward Higher Education and employment.
The school offers Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Students from Years 10-12 volunteer to take on the challenges posed by the different aspects of this award. The award is achieved by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you’re going for Gold) – volunteering, physical, skills, expedition and for Gold, a residential.
