Maplewell Hall School runs a very successful Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. This is a voluntary award programme of practical, cultural and adventurous

activities to support the personal development of young people.

We focus on the Bronze Award which covers four main sections. These are:


  • Voluntary Work
  • Physical Recreation
  • Skills
  • Expeditions

The students are supported to develop skills based around these four key areas. To plot their own progress they collect and provide a range of evidence. The leaders of this very exciting programme are members of teaching staff who work across the School with students on the scheme. Started many years, the programme has developed and is now an integral part of what we offer young people. Students’ learn many new skills which underpin the work we do develop students employability, leadership and social skills. Through participation in the scheme students’ confidence, organisation skills and leadership qualities and developed.

One of the most exciting things about this programme is that our students can achieve at the same level as any student in any setting. For further information about the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme run at Maplewell Hall School, please contact the school.
