What is the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award?
Experiences that last a lifetime!
It is an accreditation and official recognition of experiences outside the classroom
...because not all learning happens in the classroom, young people need experiences outside the classroom to become committed, responsible and fulfilled citizens of the world.
It is voluntary, non-competitive, enjoyable and requires sustained effort over time. The Award encourages young people to design their own programme of activities, to set their own goals and to challenge themselves.
It is our aim that every student of the New English School should have the opportunity to take part in the Award.
