The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
Year 11 are getting ready for their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE), they went on a practise expedition from Black Down in West Sussex and back to school. Pupils had to use their communication, map reading and navigation skills and were responsible for a medical kit.
They also enjoyed some panoramic views and met some friendly animals along the way.
Pupils are encouraged to take part in the DofE as it is a fun and exciting challenge for young people that is highly thought of by perspective employers. It illustrates that young people can work well in a team environment and are capable of challenging themselves.
