The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

Peterhouse offers the International Award to all pupils from C Block upwards.
For general information please see

International Award - Declaration
The International Award is an exciting self-development programme available to all young people worldwide equipping them with life skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and the world.

To date over 6 million young people from over 120 countries have been motivated to undertake a variety of voluntary and challenging activities, so this is a highly respected and recognised programme.

The Award concept is one of individual challenge.  It presents to young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community. 

Who is it available to?
The award to available to anyone in C Block and above. 
We will begin running the Bronze award – available to all who have turned 14.  The Gold Award will be available to anyone who has turned 16.
We may offer the Silver award in the future, but do not recommend it as it will invariably conflict with the public examinations undertaken by the pupils.  The Silver A ward will be available to anyone who has turned 15.
