Duke of Edinburgh Award

In the Senior School, most of the girls take the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE) at Bronze level, and very high proportions go on to take Silver and Gold.

This Award is highly regarded and valued by UCAS and employers alike, who recognise it as the rigorous test of endurance it undoubtedly is.

More importantly, it builds the girls' confidence in themselves and each other. It also gives them the opportunity to develop life-skills such as team work, organisation, self-reliance and inter-personal skills through the service, physical and skill sections.

Having done Bronze, Silver and currently doing Gold I have made lifelong friends and definitely memories that will stick with me for a long time!
