Duke of Edinburgh
Cromer Academy offers students the opportunity to achieve their Duke of Edinburgh Award. Year 9 students are able to complete their Bronze Award, while Year 10 are offered the Silver Award. The Duke of Edinburgh Award allows students to develop skills outside of the classroom and give back to the community. Students complete four sections, volunteering, skill, physical and expedition. These sections allow students to try new things or develop further in areas that interest them. The DofE Award at Cromer is growing year on year with large numbers of students choosing to take on the challenge.
“The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award exists for all young people. Functioning as a complement to formal education, the purpose of the DofE is to help young people gain experience of some of the most rewarding opportunities available to adults in their non-working lives. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has helped countless young people on their sometimes difficult path to adulthood. It has gone from strength to strength, with Awards being achieved every day and employers in every field of industry recognising the value of the experiences gained and the skills and characteristics developed by the young people that take part.” – HRH THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH
