The teachers were great role models and gave me a lot of encouragement as I went through my school life.

Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme was reintroduced to Hamilton College at Bronze Level in 2007 - 2008. Participation levels have seen tremendous and we are now offering the programme at Bronze in S3, at Silver in S4, and Gold in S5 and S6.

Staff and pupils bring a wealth of assistance and enthusiasm to the development of the Award, which provides participants with excellent personal development opportunities that fit well with our school ethos. 

For further information on the Award see www.dofe.org.
