Duke of Edinburgh

At Teddington School we are pleased to be able to offer students the opportunity to participate in the Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a real adventure for young people and allows them to broaden their horizons and face new challenges.

As well as the expedition section, for which training is completed in school, all participants are required to carry out three further sections; volunteering, skill and physical recreation. The award takes a minimum of six months to complete and enables students to show a real commitment and sense of community.

Practice Expedition March 2022

Between the 11-14 March, 155 students across Years 9 to 11 took part in their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award practice expedition in two separate groups. Students were first greeted by the company Aim High Expeditions who outlined the overall agenda and technical points of the two days ahead. The students walked in groups, and each subgroup was expected to work together to map read and navigate their way along the planned routes whilst problem solving how to get back on track if they found themselves off course. On arrival back at the campsite, each group prepared food and their tents for the evening as well as checking routes for the following day. Despite the weather conditions and the students being tired on the morning of the second day, each group was expected to prepare their equipment before departing for day 2 of the expedition. All the students made it safely back to the campsite to support the clear-up and pack-down of equipment. The instructors held a debrief with students to provide general feedback and outline key learning points for their assessed expeditions between 13-16 May.
