Duke of Edinburgh
We have a well established Duke of Edinburgh programme that involves S3 to S6 pupils and covers Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
At Eyemouth High School our policy is that Duke of Edinburgh is an option for all pupils. We will work to accommodate all needs and backgrounds. We fundraise to bring costs down making it an option for any pupil who would like to take part. We also have a well stocked cupboard of supplies for pupils to borrow so all you need is your boots!
The Duke of Edinburgh award scheme involves four aspects; Volunteering, Skill, Physical and Expedition. At Gold level you also need to complete a residential. For each level (Bronze, Silver and Gold) the four aspects remain the same but the length of time taken to complete each differs.
We are very lucky to be well staffed and the school is very supportive in accommodating staff development as well as the growth of Duke of Edinburgh.
