Duke of Edinburgh Award
Hundreds of Bromsgrove pupils are involved in the Duke of Edinburgh ’s Award scheme at Bromsgrove School at Bronze, Silver and Gold level. Participation at all levels is voluntary. All Lower Fourths are given an introduction to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme though Bromsgrove Badge, with the majority of students opting to participate in the Bronze Award in Upper Fourth.
All levels of the award require participants to undertake four sections:
Physical Recreation (sports)
The Skill and Physical Recreation requirements can be met through our extensive extra-curricular programme. However, pupils with interests outside of the School are equally encouraged to develop these further.
The expedition programme begins in the Lower Fourth Form with Bromsgrove Badge and runs throughout the years, becoming increasingly more challenging. At Gold level, there is an additional Residential section to be completed. This involves a 5 day, 4 night experience in unfamiliar surroundings and aims to broaden young people's experiences through involvement with others who are not known to them.
