Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a high quality, enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development activities for young people aged 14 – 25.
Bronze Award for Year 10
Sign up has now finished, we have nearly 100 students taking this opportunity this year which is amazing. They will be signed up to the online platform and starting their physical, skill and volunteering sections over the next few weeks.
Silver Award for Years 11 and 12
This is the first year we have launched Silver with a school-provided expedition as again we have had an increase in interest, which is brilliant. On Tuesday 15th November 5 - 6pm in the dining hall we have an information meeting about the Silver Award and the deadline for signing up will be two weeks after that on Tuesday 29th November 2022.
DofE expeditions must be unaccompanied, self-reliant, and by the participant's own physical efforts. For the Bronze Award, participants need to complete a 2-day expedition carrying all of their kit, walking an average of 14 kilometres per day and camping overnight.
Tring School will be using Wildside Outdoors to provide the training, support and supervision to enable participants to safely undertake this expedition. Further details of who they are and what they do can be found on their website https://wildsideoutdoors.co.uk/
