At Sibford School we encourage pupils to ‘live adventurously’ and to take advantage of all opportunities that come their way. Throughout the year we arrange regular trips to places of interest in both in the UK and further afield, to further enrich the curriculum here at Sibford.
Sibford School offers three levels of Duke of Edinburgh; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Students can sign up for their Bronze award from the age of 14 and, on completion of all four sections, are invited to sign up for the Silver award.
The Gold award is available to Sixth Form students. Usually they will have completed their Bronze and Silver first although it is possible to have direct entry into the award at Gold Level.
The school organises expeditions at all three levels where students will be expected to camp and undertake outdoor skills. Recent expeditions have been in Oxfordshire (Bronze), the New Forest (Silver) and the Lake District (Gold).
This takes place during the last week of the Summer term and all pupils in Year 7 – 10 are taken off of normal timetable and given the opportunity to try an activity that is new, exciting and something that perhaps they would not normally undertake.
Experience and feedback tells us that the pupils benefit greatly from these activities and it also gives then quality time to spend as a year group after a busy year of studies.
