Hungerhill School

Duke of Edinburgh Award

Running alongside the enrichment programme is the Duke of Edinburgh Award. This is a scheme that is renowned and highly respected by schools, universities and employers. The programme begins when students reach Year 9 and work towards the Bronze Award: they can then move up to the Silver and even Gold award which comes with an invitation to Buckingham Palace or Holyroodhouse Palace on completion!

At Hungerhill School, students apply for the Bronze Award in year 9 and complete the expedition section in year 10. Certificates are presented to those that complete the award at the year 10 awards morning. The award can be completed anytime up to the age of 25 and is an excellent opportunity to try new activities and learn new skills.
