Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a very popular undertaking at Kirkham Grammar School and all pupils may enrol at the start of fourth year. There are three levels for the award; Bronze, Silver , and Gold and each level of the award involves preparing for and completing an expedition, learning a skill, completing a physical activity, and giving up some time to help others. Full details of the minimum age and the time needed to complete each level of the award can be found at the DofE website. www.dofe.org/


We would normally suggest pupils aim to complete their Bronze Award during fourth year, their Silver Award during fifth year and then their Gold Award during the sixth-form. Pupils can however opt to join the Silver or Gold Award directly however they will need to complete their activities over a longer period and meet the minimum age requirement for each level.


DofE Expeditions are normally held in the October half-term, Easter Holidays, and towards the end of the Summer term. DofE Expedition training takes place with Mr Callister every Tuesday lunchtime in the CCF hut and Training days/Practice expeditions are held several times a year. Dates for Expeditions and Training days are normally printed in the School Diary for each term. Mrs Sutcliffe is also available in T5 on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime 12.05-12.35 to help with any queries about registration or choosing which activities to undertake.
