What is the Duke of Edinburgh Award?
The DofE is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 - 24 year olds the opportunity to be the very best that they can be. There are three levels of the Award programme, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Award has 4 sections, each of which must be completed to successfully to gain the Award.

Following the Easter holiday each year, Year 9 students are invited to enrol in the Adventurers group. This aims to equip them to take part in the expedition part of the DofE Award and give them a chance to see if they “up for it”.
On completion of the Adventurers module, they can apply to take part in the full DofE scheme and get started on their non-expedition sections.
