Duke of Edinburgh Award

At Berwickshire High School we offer students the opportunity to take on their Bronze or Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award in school.

To start your Bronze Award you must be 14 (or nearly 14) so pupils normally sign up in S3 however you have until your 25th birthday to complete an Award at any level so anyone is welcome! Bronze Award enrolment is usually offered to S3 pupils in the autumn term with a sign-up deadline before the October break. A similar system is in place for S4 pupils wishing to embark on their Silver Award.

The Gold Award is an option for pupils from the age of 16 but is currently run in conjunction with other schools in the Borders.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to develop life skills such as leadership, communication, problem solving and teamwork but most importantly it is an adventure which they will never forget.
