Duke of Edinburgh Award
Richmond Park Academy is now enrolling our current Year 9  and Year 10 students to take part in the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a fantastic opportunity for Richmond Park Academy students. It will enable them to develop widely recognised life skills and provide them with a sense of adventure. In addition, students will make a difference to other peoples’ lives within the Richmond community through their volunteering. They will become fitter and healthier, make new friends and return with memories which will last a lifetime. As you are aware the Duke of Edinburgh is a renowned scheme for young people widely recognised by colleges and employers. It is an opportunity for your child to gain unlimited skills outside of the classroom environment. It enables students to grow, gain a sense of self-sufficiency, independence and teamwork skills. It is a real sense of adventure and an amazing opportunity.
