Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The DofE is a nationally recognised award that develops young peoples skills and personal potential. It is part of our wide range of extracurricular opportunities and helps develop our students' ASPIRE leaner skills and character virtues.

We offer the DofE Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Students from years 9 to 11 volunteer to take on the challenges posed by the different aspects of this award. Students achieve the award by completing a personal programme of activities broken down into four sections:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community.
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests.
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad.

For the Gold award, students must complete five sections, with the additional activity being a residential. The residential requires students to complete a shared activity by working and staying away from home.
