Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a nationally recognised personal development scheme. The Award is a non-competitive programme of activities encouraging young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable activities in their free time. Around 80 students a year achieve the initial Bronze award at Uffculme School and some go on to the Silver programme during their time at school. The programme involves students in a community service activity, such as a recycling programme, as well as a team expedition on foot, bicycle, canoe or horseback. The scheme also aims to encourage students to pursue an individual skill and physical activity such as sports, dance, music, photography, computing or fitness.
The programme is run jointly in school by Miss Purrington and Mr Harbour who, along with many other members of staff support the students in their chosen challenges and on the expeditions.
With organisation and commitment, we have no doubt your son/daughter will find the DofE Award challenging, fun and highly rewarding
