Silver Award D of E

The Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award is offered to students in Year 10 or older. Students that have completed their Bronze award (non- direct entrants) can complete the skills, volunteering and physical sections of their Silver programme in 6 months. Students that have not undertaken the Bronze award are known as direct entrants and will take at least 12 months to complete the award with sections taking between 3- 12 months. The expedition section is made up of 4 elements; 2 training days held at Farmor's School, a 3- day practice expedition and finally, a 3-day assessed expedition. This award level was re-introduced at Farmor's in 2017-2018 and we are excited to grow and attract more participants moving forward.
