Hello Year 8 parents, just as a reminder and to reassure you and your children, the Duke of Edinburgh award Bronze sign-up period is still open, online payments for the trip and sign-up fees can be taken via parentmail (the link in this email).
Year 9’s participation in the duke of Edinburgh is not expected to be affected in any way due to current events.
There is currently an effort underway to replace the normal events leading up to October 2020’s cohort such as the parents meet and greet, the DofE mixer, assemblies and form presentations, your patience and understanding is very much appreciated.
For more information ahead of any online releases please visit https://www.dofe.org/do/ for more information.
When does it begin and when is the deadline for signing up?
The program for our students begins at the start of year 9 in early October and complete payments and sign-up forms can be completed for next year at any point up until this point.
How many places are available?
We can take everyone in the year group, we have an excellent team of staff, student helpers, ambassadors and a local provider that help me run the program and are absolutely incredible at keeping everyone motivated.
