Duke of Edinburgh

 The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an international scheme encouraging independence and self-reliance, which is open to young people aged between 14 and 25. The scheme has three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Participants need to complete an expedition, provide a service for the community and learn (or improve on) a skill and a physical activity or sport.

At Withington, the Gold award is available to members of the Sixth Form. This involves a 3-day practice expedition usually at October half term to the Yorkshire Dales, followed by a 4-day expedition in the Summer term to the Lake District and a residential project. While most girls have completed the Bronze award in Upper Fourth (Year 9) and the Silver award in Fifth Form (Years 10 & 11), it is possible for members of the Sixth Form to enter the Award Scheme at Gold level.
