School Co-ordinator Mrs S Melbourne

At present nearly 20,000 young people are participating in the DofE throughout Wales through the medium of both Welsh and English. The DofE in Wales is run at schools, youth clubs, colleges, universities and in the workplace. So wherever you are , if you're between 14 and 24 and want to make the most out of life why not take part? There are 56 Operating Authorities throughout Wales licensed to run DofE programmes within their area.

A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. Are you in year 10 and know that there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.


We currently do the Bronze level of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award in school.


You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections Volunteering, Physical, Skills and 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.

If you need any further information visit Mrs Melbourne in D6 Wednesday lunchtimes.

If you've decided to do your DofE, then find out more info on getting started, choosing your activities and how to complete your DofE and achieve your Award!
