DofE

Here at Ellis Guilford School, we offer the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. Year 9 students are offered the opportunity to complete this award as an extra-curricular activity.

We advertise the award scheme towards the end of Year 8 ready for enrollment at the start of the new academic year. This gives the students plenty of time to complete all sections of the award prior to the expedition.

Many young people find achieving a DofE Award life changing. A fun adventure and major challenge. A wide range of activities offer endless possibilities to anyone aged 14 to 24. Millions of young people in the UK have already taken part in the world’s leading youth achievement award – pushing personal boundaries, gaining new skills and enhancing their CVs and university applications. Is your child ready to get involved and go the extra mile?
