The Packwood Award is our bespoke Outdoor Skills and Leadership Programme. It is great to see our wonderful grounds come to life on Thursday afternoons as all pupils take part in a range of activities and challenges. Our partnership with the John Muir Award might see them carry out conversation work around the extensive school grounds or further afield across Shropshire. They might learn about nature by taking part in Packwood Spring Watch or get creative with Wild Art. They will prepare for an adventure in Snowdonia by learning camp craft such as cooking on Trangia cooking stoves.
Bridging the gap between Forest School in Acorns and the Duke of Edinburgh Award in senior schools the Packwood Award sees pupils complete Bronze, Silver and Gold levels building key skills such as confidence and resilience as well as developing a love and respect for the great outdoors.
