New Award from ASDAN


The Excelsis Award has been developed by ASDAN in partnership with the Independent Schools Association to bring an accredited personal skills development programme to the independent sector. This flexible curriculum framework encourages the development of highly-valued core skills through extra-curricular activities and challenges in PSHE & Citizenship.

The Excelsis Award has been designed for pupils in independent school settings, but would also suit international schools and Gifted & Talented groups. It is available at three levels:

  • Foundation: aimed at ages 11-14
  • Intermediate: aimed at ages 14-16
  • Advanced: aimed at Post-16

Young people showing exceptional levels of competency for their age may complete the award at a higher, more appropriate level.
