The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh is a valued extra-curricular activity at Polam Hall with more than half of Year 9 joining at Bronze level. This challenging award is well-recognised by universities and employers as a hallmark of maturity, independence and resilience and the School has invested heavily in training for the Award which means we are now an independent licence holder offering our pupils Bronze, Silver and Gold.
