We are pleased to be offering the Bronze D of E Award to our current Year 9 students and Silver to students in Year 10.

Enrolment forms were given out during assembly but can also be found on the website. Please note that there are 25 places available for each level and that places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please contact Mrs S Lilley, D of E Manager if you have any queries.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people aged 14-24. As well as being a great opportunity for your child to try new activities or gain recognition for the things they are doing already, it really helps them to stand out from the crowd when it comes to job and college interviews. It gives them something to put on their CV, lots to talk about at an interview and it also shows that they’ve developed lots of the skills that employers are looking for. The award is highly valued and recognised by colleges, universities and employers around the world. Your child has been given some information about the structure of the award in a recent assembly but you can find out more by visiting the website www.dofe.org.
