Duke of Edinburgh's Awards

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is the premier personal development award for young people and provides an internationally recognised qualification.  At Shrewsbury we offer all three levels of the Award:  Bronze, Silver and Gold.  The award is not an activity in itself yet serves to accredit worthy undertakings that pupils will undertake as part of their normal programme as well as giving them a wider outlook.  Not all that start the award will finish; and, like all good qualifications, the inherent value of any level of the award lies in its difficulty and challenge.
