ASPIRE Private British School is an Independent Operator of the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award which we encourage the students to enter when they reach the qualifying age of 14.
The Duke of Edinburgh scheme has four sections:
- Service – Encourages service to others
- Expedition – Encourages the spirit of adventure and discovery
- Skills – Develops a new interest
- Physical Recreation– Encourages participation in a particular sport
During the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award the students become involved in various projects which offer service to the local community whilst learning to work as a team and for the good of others.
The camping section of the Award is the one which the students look forward to the most. This is an opportunity to challenge themselves, embrace the outdorr world and attain survival skills whilst learning to work and enjoy unforgettable team experiences.
The third and fourth section of the programme afford the students the opportunity to perform and develop activities such as: football, piano, ballet, karate, learning a language. This allows every child to develop their particular interest and skill. There are plenty of opportunities for students to demonstrate both their creativity and originality.
The International Duke of Edinburgh Award is greatly encouraged by the teachers as a means of developing the whole child by celebrating individuals’
interests and diversity. It is also an internationally renowned qualification that carries great weight on a student’s university application or CV.
