Duke of Edinburgh KS4
As part of our Key Stage 4 provision, pupils get the opportunity to choose four subjects that they would like to study further during years 10 and 11.
A number of students in Year 10 and 11 have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award scheme. This is a special and very exciting experience offered by The Abbey as a non-competitive, personal challenge for every student who elects to take part. It provides the participant the chance to develop skills for life, fulfil their potential and potentially increase future educational and career opportunities.
There are four sections of the award to complete:
- Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community.
- Physical: improving themselves in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.
- Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests.
- Expedition: Planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey
