Parents' Information Booklet

The Duke of Edinburgh Award at Hampton college is a thriving and successful department. We average an annual intake of over 80 pupils for the Award each year with an annual presentation event with guest speaker.

Our belief at the school is that all pupils have a right to access such an exciting programme and we are committed to helping pupils achieve their goals within the programme itself.

Bronze Award recruitment takes place during the end of Year 9 and most pupils complete the Award whilst in Year 10 .

We have successfully launched our Bronze award to our Year 10 students, They will be completing their physical, skill and volunteering sections for either 3 or 6 months and will finish their award by completing their expedition to sign off their Bronze award.

For both levels of the Award, pupils are involved in skills, physical activities and volunteering, as well as an expedition. A range of challenging activities take place which always inspire others, for example, paired reading links with the local primary school, studies of genealogy, local Brownie groups being supported as well as swimming coaching, football coaching, music lessons, helping the elderly and young and many more.

The cost of the Award is kept at a minimum with all our provision coming from an ‘in-house’ system of experienced staff.
