 Oryx Award

The Oryx award is a DES based co-curricular award system for Year 9 to Year 13 pupils. It is based on the D of E International Award, but incorporates all aspects of our pupils’ co-curricular involvement in their school and the wider community.

At DES, we want to help mould our pupils into global citizens, who appreciate the need to develop all aspects of themselves whilst serving their community; the Oryx award is an integral part of that aim.

This will be the first year we have adopted this award at DES and we will continue to adapt the award to best fit the needs of our pupils. It is an exciting opportunity to highlight all the good work our pupils do outside of the classroom and we look forward to acknowledging their success.
