Duke of Edinburgh Award
Hundreds of Bromsgrove pupils are involved in the Civilian Duke of Edinburgh ’s Award scheme at Bromsgrove School. It is also possible to work towards the awards through the Combined Cadet Force (CCF). There are three levels of the award: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
All Upper Fourths are given the opportunity to complete their Bronze Award. At Silver and Gold level, participation is voluntary. 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. Community Service is a rewarding activity for all pupils and meets the requirements of the Service section.
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 section to be completed: the Residential. 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.
