The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
Year 10 and 11 students have the opportunity to take part in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. DofE tests students physical, mental and social ability. Throughout the Bronze, Silver and Gold stages, students are expected to show a level of commitment and responsibility that will ensure that they will complete the award. It is through this that we see the students grow in self confidence, maturity, and willingness to take responsibility.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is about achieving the skills, confidence and a positive attitude that employers, colleges and universities are looking for.
The College encourages students to take part in DofE. Students become fitter and healthier, they make new friends and share memories that will last a lifetime.
