The Coleshill School has been running a successful Bronze Duke of Edinburgh program for four years and we are extremely proud of the students who have successfully completed the award.
The award gives our young people the chance to develop skills for life and work and fulfil their potential. The year requires all candidates to volunteer in and around our local community, learn a new skill and take part in regular physical activity. To conclude their award, they must complete a ‘Practice and Assessed’ Expedition, which is great fun for staff and students alike, and a fantastic way to finish the course.
