Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) scheme is hugely popular at Caterham School; we are a dedicated DofE Award centre and currently have over 150 pupils involved across all levels, from Bronze to Gold Awards.
The Bronze and Silver Awards are undertaken in the Fourth Year (Year 10) and the Gold award in the Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13).
The award is split into four sections: Volunteering. Physical, Skill and Expedition. Pupils learn to be self-reliant, independent, active and giving, and all thoroughly enjoy the experience.
The award is run by a large group of dedicated staff who give up their time to help the pupils complete the sections and supervise the expeditions. Expedition destinations include The Black Mountains, Dartmoor, Exmoor, The New Forest and The North Downs.
