Duke of Edingburgh

The Sittingbourne School is Licensed to undertake The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold Award with students from Year 9 through to Year 13.

Our intention is to run the Bronze and Silver Awards in 2020 to as many students as possible.


During 2019 the school joined 2 of our other Trust schools in delivering the first Bronze Award to 110 students across the 3 secondaries.  The Duke of Edinburgh Awards provide students with experience outside their normal lives and requires them to undertake volunteering in the local community, physical activities as well as planning a two day hike and camping.


The school and Trust are incredibly proud of the students that achieve these awards.  We have a large amount of high quality equipment in order to support these awards, reducing the financial burden significantly in order to allow all students to succeed regardless of background.
