The Duke of Edinburgh's Award or Service

Encouraged throughout the School, the majority of our students complete The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Valued greatly by both universities and employers, the Award has three levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Sixth Form students can continue on the Award and work towards their next level, or can start the Award from the beginning if they have not previously attempted DofE. The Award encompasses four core sections: volunteering, physical, skills and expedition. For those completing the Gold Award, an additional section - residential - is also part of the requirement.

For those not completing The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the School will be providing opportunities for students to undertake service projects in the local community.
