Many pupils take up the challenge of working towards Silver and Gold in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, where they not only learn survival skills, but also participate in activities such as cycling, kayaking, sailing and a wide range of community service projects.


The DofE Award


The award is a challenging programme of leisure time activities, designed to encourage young people to learn new skills, help others, and experience adventure in the outdoors.

Through participation pupils make new friends, develop social and inter-personal skills, and increase their initiative, independence and self-confidence. Completion of the ‘Assessed Expedition’ and of the final award gives a great sense of achievement. What’s more the award is highly prestigious, and valued by colleges, universities and employers. Pupils at Hutchesons’ participate in either the Silver or the Gold award.
