Duke of Edinburgh Award

2012 was the 50th year of the association between Box Hill School and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. The scheme itself is in its 56th year and goes from strength to strength, valued by universities and employers alike.

Box Hill School is now a directly licensed centre. The number of students currently participating is excellent with 75 students engaged in the Bronze award and 62 completing their Silver expedition in June. There are 50 silver awardees this year which is no mean achievement, and we have 10 Gold awardees and 18 students currently undertaking the award at this highest level.

It is clear that Box Hill School students today are committed to the award which exemplifies the values of the school itself in its challenges and success.
