The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is now an integral part of our personal development offer.
The Duke of Edinburgh award ensures students develop skills for life and work, such as confidence, commitment, resilience and team work. The school is a licensed centre and as a result offers the Bronze award to all Year 9 & 10 students and then offers the Silver award to students who have previously completed the Bronze award.
We are also proud to have a cadet group as part of our school community. This is made up of Penistone students and run by staff. This helps them to develop leadership skills, determination and discipline.
