Duke of Edinburgh Award

Every year a small group of year 9 students from Writhlington takes part in the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections Volunteering, Physical, Skills and a Writhlington led Expedition. You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter,developing skills and going on an expedition. The best bit is - you get to choose what you do!

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing, and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
