DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD
This year for the first time ever we are pleased to be able to offer the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award as an extracurricular activity for year 10 students. The DofE is a nationally recognisable accreditation for young people. It gives all those who participate the chance to develop skills for work and life, fulfilling their potential and enabling them to have a brighter future. Taking part in the DofE builds confidence and self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who complete their Award.
We are pleased to be able to offer the Bronze DofE in conjunction with Warwickshire County Council, who will be delivering the programme for the school. The DofE meetings will take place in school, but there is a need to commit to some extra circular activities. In addition to the weekly training sessions there are 2 training days, a local Warwickshire 2 day 1 night practice and a 2 day 1 night qualifying expedition, the location/date will be advised in September.
For more information, please see the letter send to all parents of students entering year 10 in the next academic year.
