We are very proud to have become a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) Directly Licensed Centre. The DofE is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading youth achievement award. A DofE programme involves volunteering in the community, learning a skill, taking part in a physical activity and planning and undertaking an expedition out in the countryside where students plan a route, camp overnight and cook their own food.

We are excited to be able to work with the charity to offer the DofE to our students. Taking part in a DofE programme significantly impacts young people’s futures, enabling them to develop skills for life and work, such as confidence, commitment, resilience and team work. Students are introduced to new experiences and skills whilst sharing enjoyment and making life-long memories.
