Charters School is delighted to offer a high quality and exciting Duke of Edinburgh's Award programme for students in Years 10-13. The Duke of Edinburgh's Awards are nationally recognised and involve a whole host of activities such as helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, and going on an expedition.

These awards have been running at the school for over 12 years. From September 2010 we have been working with an external provider Wilderness with an exciting programme tailored to the needs of our students.

More information is available on the The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Website -
