DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD SCHEME

We proudly offer the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme for Year 9 and Year 10 students.

“The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has helped countless young people on their sometimes-difficult path to adulthood.” – HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

The DofE Award is widely regarded as being the world’s leading youth achievement award. The award scheme is set up to give young people exciting and character-building opportunities as they develop into adulthood, we have therefore established a focus for our activities on young people from the age of 14. We are currently offering the Bronze Award to our year 9 and 10 students.

The Bronze Award consists of four parts as follows:

  • Volunteering– this includes voluntary work that will directly benefit others, for example working in a charity shop or helping run a club at school.
  • Skill – this involves learning a new skill or developing an existing one
  • Physical Activity – participating in regular physical activity
  • Expedition – planning and participating in each of two-day overnight practice and assessed expeditions.
