Role Models and Catalysts for Change

Duke of Edinburgh

Welcome to our very own D of E page!  The Duke of Edinburgh Award (D of E) is designed to promote a range of skills in young people.  These include teamwork, resilience, innovation, problem-solving, communication and determination.


Students will need to complete four sections for each award.  In Year 10 students will start the Bronze Award,  The four sections to be attempted are:


Service (To others/Community)





On successful completion, students move onto the Silver Award.  The sections are the same but students need to spend longer on each of the areas in order to complete the award.  Once completed, pupils are then free to attempt the Gold Award at their next place of education.  They have until the age of 24 to finish this. 




D of E Autumn 2021


Welcome back to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  I am delighted to see all our students back to school and excited in starting our D of E programme with our students.  As always there are challenges ahead of us but we have started training for expedition sections by improving our fitness for walking.


The Year 11 pupils will be completing their Bronze challenges this year and we look forward to celebrating their achievements soon!


See you out and about!

Year 11 D of E Programme 2021- 2022


Welcome to our programme for this year!  There are many different activities being offered to our students including,  judo, rowing, water safety, individual travel training, walking, first aid and  volunteering at local parks and gardens.


All activities are designed to improve the opportunities to develop the characteristics associated with My Personal Best.  These character traits will help students define themselves and help identify their personal strengths in order to achieve their full potential.

In these unusual times, it has become clear that the Duke of Edinburgh Programme cannot continue as normal!  The D of E have suggested certain adaptions to the award so that students can carry on volunteering, learning skills and keeping active whilst at home!
