We have set up the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme at St George’s Church of England Foundation School to give our pupils the opportunity to take part in the world’s leading youth achievement award. Through our DofE programme, pupils will experience new activities and learn new skills while developing their independence, their resilience, their teamwork and their community values along the way.

As this is the first year of the programme, we are offering this to pupils who will be in Year 9 in September 2022. There are a limited number of spaces and full information can be found in the information letter in the ‘information for parents’ section below, along with a powerpoint explaining how parents can support their young person with achieving the award.

Please follow the links below for more information about the D of E and some resources to support participants. We will update this site regularly with any relevant forms or information. If you have any queries please email our D of E Manager, Mr Knight –
