Duke of Edinburgh's Award

DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S AWARD

 

If your son / daughter has enrolled on the Duke of Edinburgh award please go to their ‘Team’ page for more detailed and up to date information.

At Tarporley High School, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme starts in Year 9 with the Bronze Award. Once you have completed this, you can enrol for the Silver Award in Year 10, and in Year 12 the Gold Award is available.

A Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

You can achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five for the Gold Award):

  • Volunteering
  • Physical
  • Skills
  • Expedition

You’ll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing new skills, going on an expedition, and taking part in a residential activity (Gold Award only). But, here’s the best bit - you get to choose what you do!

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing and, along the way, you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Please visit www.dofe.org for further information on the award.
