There are four sections (five for Gold): Volunteering, Physical, Skills, and Expedition, with an additional Residential section for Gold.
Volunteering: Students in the past have taken the Volunteering section with Croydon Police, Social Services (Meals on Wheels), First Aid with the British Red Cross, Life Saving and assisting with groups such as Beavers and Cubs.
Physical: Students have participated in a wide range of sports and other physical activities, including swimming, diving, tennis and martial arts.
Skills: Students have pursued their interests in drama, car mechanics and driving, electronics, librarianship and debating.
Expeditions: Expeditions at this level normally go to the Lake District, the North West Highlands or the Brecon Beacons. Occasionally there will be trips further afield; in the past some students have completed this section on expeditions to Norway, Iceland, South Africa and Canada.
