International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh International Award is one of the most popular activities at Shrewsbury International School for students in the Senior School (Y10-13). Shrewsbury is an accredited Independent Award Centre for the International Award scheme.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage a spirit of adventure, discovery and community responsibility. Young people all over the world participate, and universities and future employers value it highly.

There are three levels of the Award: Bronze (Y10), Silver (Y11) and Gold (Y12/Y13). Most Year 10’S complete the Bronze award, with some of the associated sections incorporated into the annual Y10 residential trip. Many students progress to the more advanced Silver and Gold level awards.

Each award level comprises 4 sections: service, skill, physical recreation and everyone’s favourite - the adventurous journey! At each level, there is a requirement to complete two adventurous journeys; a practice and an assessed journey. In addition, Gold participants also take part in an individual residential.

Each Award requires hard work, dedication and keen sense of fun. Gold students have the opportunity of completing their qualifying adventurous journey in an international location. In the past Shrewsbury Gold students have trekked in the national parks of New Zealand, Australia, France and the USA. The Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii has been a recent destination – an awesome experience for all.

“There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself”.
