Duke of Edinburgh Award Returns

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is back and we look forward to welcoming familiar and new participants to the programme.

The programme is open to students in Year 9 to Year 12 who are looking to complete their Bronze, Silver or Gold awards. Relevant year groups will already have the option to register via ParentPay, but you'll need to apply before the end of Term 1 if you want to commit.

If you are new to the award or even a seasoned parental veteran, we invite parents and students to attend our Duke of Edinburgh Award evening on Tuesday 10th October from 6pm to 7:30pm in the Main Hall, which will cover all aspects of the programme in detail. 

Determination and teamwork ensured last season was exceptionally successful, with over 200 students completing back-to-back expeditions including our first cycling expedition, which we hope to continue at Silver level. 

Please can all existing participants check their DofE accounts to make sure that all assessor reports have been entered for sections so that they may be approved and the award completed. We are aiming to give out all completed awards in Term 2 so please make sure yours is ready.
