Duke Of Edinburgh Award

Bronze Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award is in its 4th successful year at NHESC. It is the world’s leading youth achievement award available to a limited number of our students who wish to ‘push personal boundaries, gain new skills and enhance their CVs by being be the very best they can be. The young people do this by committing to participate in three on-going activities as well as undertaking one-night expedition.

The school is following the Bronze Award allowing enough time for all the sections to be completed in one year but students can achieve sectional awards and would still have several years after leaving NHESC to be able to complete the full Bronze Award through another Duke of Edinburgh centre which staff would direct them towards.

There are currently a 10 students already actively involved this academic year in a variety of different Sections  including:

  • Physical: Boxing, Badminton, Football
  • New Skill: Horse Riding, Golf, American Pool, Learning an instrument
  • Volunteering: Old Peoples home, Bird Boxes,  Charity Car Wash (Feb 2021)
  • Expedition: Two day walk one nights camping in Bedfordshire (June 2021)  


Below are some of our previous students working hard 



The Co-ordinator for Duke of Edinburgh is Tom Clark.
