School gains accreditation for Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

HRH’s Award AOK at TRS!

Staff expertise in organising the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has led to The Radclyffe School being recognised as a Directly Licensed Centre.

Each Year, students in Year 10 undertake the Bronze Award. Thirty-two students will complete the award with their final expedition in Saddleworth later this month. The award has three other sections – a volunteering activity, a physical challenge, and learning or developing a new skill, all of which are carried on for at least three months.

The Radclyffe School has taken over organisation of the award from Oldham Council. DoE Co-ordinator Tom Davies said, “We are very pleased to offer the award for our students, and receiving the license enables us to manage the whole process.

“This is the fourth year our students have taken their DoE Bronze Award, with numbers increasing each year. Several students have gone on to take their Silver and Gold Awards at Sixth Form and in Higher Education.”

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is the world’s leading achievement programme for young people.
