Duke of Edinburgh (DofE)

Many students in Years 9 – 11 are working towards their D of E awards, which is the world’s leading achievement awards for young people aged 14-24. Students benefit enormously from the chance to develop skills for life and work, fulfill their potential and be the best that they can be.


Doing their DofE can be a life-changing adventure for your child. On the way, they will do their own exciting and challenging programme of activities to help them reach their full potential. They will learn new skills, help others, have fun, make new friends and gain a great sense of achievement. The DofE can help young people grow in confidence and build resilience whilst pushing them out of their comfort zone.


For young people, a DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. The DofE award can help students map out an exciting new future and the award is also recognised by colleges, universities and employers.
Young people can do programmes at three levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold, which lead to a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
