DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD SCHEME

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is offered at Aylsham High School.  Students are given the opportunity to complete their bronze award initially, followed by their silver and potentially gold awards if they choose.  The scheme is open to all students from the age of 14 years upwards.

Students will be required to complete six months service for the community, three months physical recreation and three months of a skilled practice. This will give the student a whole year of commitment.  The award scheme culminates in an expedition, in which students are required to navigate their way across the countryside and camp out overnight. 

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is offered as an extra-curricular activity outside of the school day.
