The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is vital to the Academy’s drive to develop the leadership skills of pupils as well as being a vehicle to develop their wider skills. 

This year we have 20 enthusiastic pupils aiming to successfully complete their Bronze Award – first expedition date 3rd/4th May – we wish them the best of luck!

What is a DofE Award?

The DofE is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be.

Aged 14 to 24? Do your DofE!

The DofE is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories.

At the same time, you’ll gather friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, as long as you’re 14 to 24, you can choose the activities that motivate you and go on your own personal journey.

We know from other participants that the DofE helps you stand out from the crowd when you apply for college, university or jobs.
