Duke of Edinburgh Award
Wilson's and the AwardWilson’s started the award in September 2008, with the current year 10’s at the time. The plan was to allow them every possibility to pass through and achieve their gold award by the end of their life at Wilson’s — something which has been continued to the present day.
In 2016 Wilson’s became a directly licensed provider of the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Each year a significant number of boys commence and complete their awards; Bronze in Year 10, Silver in Year 11 and gold in the Sixth Form. A number of Wilson’s boys have had the honour and recognition of their hard work provided by a visit to one of the royal palaces to receive their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
