Duke of Edinburgh

The DofE at The Forest School provides a balanced programme of activities that develop the whole person in an environment of social interaction and team working.

We currently offer the Bronze Award, but will be extending the programme to Silver and Gold Awards in the near future. Full details of each one can be found in the packs attached at the bottom of this page.

Please click here for some ideas to help you complete each section. We offer an extensive range of extra-curricular activities at The Forest School which can help you to complete each section. Activities you do outside of school could also count towards the award. Choose activities that motivate you and go on your own personal journey. We expect all participants to abide by the DofE 20 Conditions during their expedition section .

Fee information

Bronze - £200.  Please note once your child has been accepted, any monies paid are non- refundable. 

Although students will have regular meetings with our DofE Manager Mr Cottey to receive support, we would like to remind you that, as this is an extra-curricular activity, we expect students, as well as parents / carers, to ensure that the different sections are completed and they are done so on time.

The Physical, Skills and Volunteering sections must be undertaken once a week, with two of these sections to be completed over three months, and one over six months. Although students will be assisted in selecting appropriate activities and monitored throughout the delivery of the Award, completion of these sections will primarily be the responsibility of the students taking part. 

Further information.  You can find useful information on the DofE website.

You can also contact The Forest's DofE Manager, Mr Cottey at mcottey@forest.academy
