Duke of Edinburgh Award

Around 100 students set off on Duke of Edinburgh expeditions each year, armed with rucksacks and compasses, ready to face the challenges ahead.  The popularity of DofE means that many progress from hiking in the Chilterns to wild camping in Dartmoor as they work through Bronze and Silver to the Gold Award.

The benefits of achieving a DofE Award at any level are endless. It’s difficult to list them all here… but its great fun, students grow in confidence and develop useful skills. Meeting new people can inspire and lead to lasting friendships. A DofE Award can also give you the edge when you apply for college, university or a job.

Put simply, the DofE is about helping you along the path to a productive and prosperous future.
