Commitment to the Duke of Edinburgh


We were delighted to be awarded the Gold Award in recognition for the school’s commitment to the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. Over many years the school has supported our students undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award through countless activities, ranging from volunteer community activities to expeditions.

Mr Gidman was invited to Buckingham Palace in May to represent school and was absolutely thrilled for the school and its students; “this award really does recognise the commitment that St John Bosco has for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. I have received this award on behalf of the staff and students who have worked tirelessly over the years and have dedicated their time to making this scheme a great success.”  The award was presented by Sarah Willingham from the BBC’S Dragons Den.
