Beyond the Classroom

Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh award is run by our own team of qualified trainers and assessors with all pupils from S3-S6 having the option of a dedicated lesson within the timetable. This approach has allowed us to be recognised as the school with the highest uptake and completion rate of Awards in Scotland in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Our expeditions take us across Scotland to places such as Arran, Skye and the Cairgorms and further afield. We offer walking, biking and we have plans to offer overnight canoeing expeditions later this year. This year’s Gold participants will be completing their expeditions in Skye Ridge and the Cairngorms.
