What's it all about?
Take a look +

The DofE award provides an opportunity to discover new interests and talents. It is also a fantastic tool to develop essential skills for life and work. As a recognised mark of achievement, the award is respected by employers and universities. Our co-curricular programme offers a range of activities which can support your Duke of Edinburgh physical, service or skill sections at Bronze, Silver and Gold level.

Our DofE & Outdoor Education Manager, Isaac, co-ordinates training for the expedition section and can advise on residential options at Gold level. DofE Bronze is compulsory for all Year 9 students through the Community, Activity, Service (CAS) curriculum and a popular option for students in Year 10 or above keen to continue with Silver and Gold.
