Following the huge success of our Bronze Award scheme last year, Alexandra Park School is excited to announce that we are now offering our current Year 9, Year 10 and Year 12 students the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze and/or Silver Award. This prestigious award gives children the chance to develop a range of life skills while increasing their fitness and having a lot of fun. duke 1

Over a period of 6 months, students will need to participate in a physical activity, develop a skill and undertaking voluntary work in their community. Finally, all participants must undertake two overnight expeditions away from home. These will involve camping and hiking in small groups with the emphasis on developing their team working skills and independence.
