Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Over the past few years the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme at Caterham School has doubled in size, and we currently have over 140 boys and girls involved throughout the levels.

The Bronze Award is undertaken in the Fourth Year (Year 10), the Silver Award in Fifth Year (Year 11) and the Gold award in the Sixth Form (Years 12&13).

The award is split into 4 sections: Volunteering, Sport, Skill and Expedition. Students 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 students complete the sections and supervise the expeditions. Expedition destinations include The Black Mountains, The New Forest and The South Downs.

If you would like more information on the Duke of Edinburgh Award then please visit the following website www.dofe.org or contact the School’s DofE co-ordinator Mr Wilkinson.
