Duke of Edinburgh
Duke of Edinburgh is available to everyone!
Any young person aged 14 – 25 can do the Award, no matter what your gender, cultural background, religious or political affiliation or ability.
It’s all about experiencing, connecting, developing!
You will get out of the Award what you put in. There is the opportunity for you to both grow personally and connect with others, through a range of new experiences. You have the chance to discover your potential.
It’s not a competition
The Award is not a competition against anyone else, but rather a personal challenge. It offers the opportunity to work with others whilst focusing on your own unique abilities.
Debating and Public Speaking
Students from all year groups are able to participate in the Catholic Schools Debating Association (CSDA) and Public Speaking Competition. Over 80 schools compete in this competition giving the students skills in critical and creative thinking.
Students can become involved in a wide range of optional music activities while at St. Clare’s.
We offer Private Music lessons in singing, piano, flute, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, french horn, guitar, violin, viola, bass guitar, drum kit and musicianship. Please refer to The Private Music Lessons Brochure which is downloadable from our College Links.
We encourage students to join our ensembles which include College Choir, A Capella Group, Chamber Choir, College Band, Piano Trio, String Ensemble and Rock Group.
Our girls can also be members of the Waverley College ensembles which range from Concert Band to Guitar ensemble and Jazz Band.
Our musical highlight is the joint Musical which we produce with Waverley College every second year. Recent Musicals have included ‘High School Musical’, ‘Grease’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Shout’.
The skills of logical thinking, arguing a case, developing teamwork and public speaking acquired as a member of the Mock Trial team are transferable to many of the activities these students undertake in the future.
In each round of this competition the students assume the roles of barristers, solicitors, witnesses or court officials. The talent and versatility of the students means they are able to assume different roles in the various trials.
During the three rounds of the competition, the teams act as either the prosecution or defence in rostered trials against other schools.
