Duke of Edinburgh Gold

Year 12 students are able to enrol in the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and every year a group of students undertakes this challenge.

The scheme focuses on personal development and achievability developing commitment, resilience, independence and responsibility. It is regarded as an asset by both universities and employers and can support further education applications.

The Gold Award is exclusive to Sixth Form and takes 12 to 18 months to achieve. As with the other levels it includes an expedition and volunteering but exclusive to Gold is the 5-day residential section when participants have to undertake a shared activity away from home. If successful participants will receive their award at an event at one of the Royal Palaces.

More information is available from the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme website, and the School’s DofE Co-ordinator, Mrs Haynes at haynese@leweston.dorset.sch.uk
