Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of Edinburgh Logo

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.

If you would like more information about what Duke of Edinburgh entails please visit the DofE website

BRONZE TEAM 2017

We currently have a team of 52 students completing their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. 31 students in Year 11 and 21 students in Year 10. This is very exciting as this is the largest group of participants we have supported through their award!
