The Duke of Edinburgh award is all about going the extra mile, gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. It is also about making new friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.

The Duke of Edinburgh award is a widely recognised award and one that can really make a CV stand out to colleges, universities and future employers.

However, with great success comes hard work. The award requires a long term commitment, staying after school when needed, and weekends away for expeditions. Self-motivation and dedication is key to being successful. The Duke of Edinburgh award is truly a life changing experience for every child.

Please watch the following for a little taste of what the Duke of Edinburgh award is all about:

I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve such a great award. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or have a closer look on the official Duke of Edinburgh award website at
