Duke of Edinburgh Award

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh programme is the world’s leading youth achievement award aimed at inspiring young people from all walks of life. The DofE award is highly valued by employers, colleges and universities and can help young people stand out from the crowd.

The DofE is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, you’ll gather friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.

The volunteering section allows the pupils to serve the community and learn new skills.

St John’s has successfully been running the DofE programme since 2017. Pupils can complete their Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards which are delivered in-house by our own dedicated staff, Ms R Thomas and Mr B Evans.

We have welcomed some special guests such as James Hook (Wales and British and Irish Lions Rugby player) and Tori James (Professional adventurer and keynote speaker) to present the pupils with their DofE certificates at our annual awards evening.

Please contact the school with any queries relating to the DofE award at: [email protected] or [email protected].
