Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Be the best you can be

At Wilsthorpe School we are very proud to run the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.


The award is offered to students in Year 9 and first began running in 2019/2020.  Since its launch we have enrolled 54 students and we hope that the numbers will continue to grow.


We plan on running Bronze and Silver next year, as part of our students’ development as citizens.


Our hope is to start offering Gold from September 2022 to our current bronze student cohort.

Some examples of what our students’ are doing include

  • Volunteered paired reading in school.

  • Serving Christmas lunch with homeless charities

  • Rock climbing

  • Cooking

  • Photography

  • Volunteering with Brownies and Scouts

  • Football and rugby coaching

  • Swimming

  • Knitting

  • Volunteering in care homes

  • Fitness in our fitness suite
