The KS3 Award is a fully resourced leadership, character education and personal development programme for delivery within schools. It supports students to become confident and resilient leaders, who develop a growth mindset, become independent thinkers and good communicators, and who have compassion and care for their communities.
Explore the role of servant leadership. Be inspired by people of faith who have impacted their communities in this way. Identify social and environmental issues. Examine how to bring hope to community. Prepare to be courageous advocates.
For our English schools, the Award has strong links to SMSC, British Values, PSHE, Character Education, Citizenship, RE and SIAMS.
For our Welsh schools, the Award has strong links to the four purposes, fostering cynefin and developing important life skills. It contributes to areas of learning and experience in the RVE and RSE curriculums.
The Award costs £12 per pupil + VAT. This includes access to all of the online teaching and learning materials, planning and assessment materials, a certificate on completion for each pupil, a school completion certificate and training and support for participating teachers.

KS3 students created bags of courage, containing a KitKat, tea bag and poem, which were hand-delivered to staff at the council, railway station, to local shops, taxi drivers and charity workers throughout the town centre. Another group wanted to celebrate the 70th birthday of the National Health Service by baking seventy cakes to say ‘Thank you.’ They delivered them to every hospital ward and NHS centre across the city.
"Our students have gained an insight into their capabilities and have thought about their strengths and weaknesses in leadership and character. They have explored what it means to be vulnerable in our society and, through their actions, have discovered that they themselves have experienced joy. In giving of themselves to serve the needs of others,they have found purpose and fulfilment."
