The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Students participate in several trips, visits and challenges in order to achieve their Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE awards.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award at Millom School has been a highly successful element of school life in recent years and the groups involved have formed a strong and vibrant part of our school community.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award will not only add to the CVs and university applications of those students involved, but also allows them to build on their team work skills/leadership skills as well as their ingenuity, initiative and resilience. The award allows students to learn new skills whilst developing their character.
