Published Wednesday 27th of June 2018 12:54:37 PM

In the past year, 150 pupils have undertaken a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at Bishop’s Stortford College with an Achievement Rate of 88%, well ahead of the regional rate of 57%. As Lower Fifth Form (Year 10) pupils embarked on their Bronze medal expeditions, a letter arrived from the Director of the South East region, Peter Singleton, in the Headmaster’s Office congratulating the school on their DoE achievements. 120 pupils at the College have achieved Bronze, Silver or Gold in 17/18, an increase of 21 pupils on the previous year. Praise was also given to the staff who run the scheme in the College. The College’s extensive activities programme is designed to support, not just breadth and balance of learning but also the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards Scheme where new skills can be learned. In total 2678 hours have been spent learning a new skill, pupils have enjoyed 2990 hours of physical activity and some 3094 hours have been spent volunteering in the local community. The College Headmaster, Jeremy Gladwin commented, “I was proud to be able to support our Gold Award students at their presentations from Prince Edward at Buckingham Palace earlier this term and we are extremely proud of all our pupils’ achievements. The scheme continues to grow in popularity and with it, our contribution to our local community. Long may it continue.”
