The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award draws together many aspects of our co-curricular programme in a single award, which Middle and Senior School students can work towards at bronze, silver or gold level. This well-known international scheme requires young people to learn a skill, undertake a physical recreation, carry out a service and complete an expedition. All International Harrovians at Harrow Bengaluru are encouraged to take on the challenge of the award, which helps them to build resilience, perseverance and fortitude.

For many International Harrovians, the award might involve them in developing a musical or artistic talent, joining a sports club, volunteering in an enterprise helping other members of the Bengaluru community, and joining a challenging outdoor education trip away from school. In the process, they develop new talents, enjoy being part of a team and helping others, and build their own self confidence in the light of their experiences and successes.
