Bronze Award

Bronze DofE is offered to students in year 9 and about 50% of the year group take part every year. It  is launched to Year 9 students in the autumn term each year and most students start their Award activities in January.    

All students complete activities in the four Award sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition section.  Students identify and take part in Volunteering, Physical and Skills activities independently although we can advise students on their choice of activities and help them identify local opportunities..  At Bronze level, two sections are followed for three months and one section for six months.  The choice of the six month section is up to students.

The Expedition section is run through the school, delivered by the volunteer expedition team. For this section, students undertake a training weekend, 2 day practice expedition and 2 day qualifying expedition.  This is often a new experience and full training is given to ensure students have the skills to successfully complete this section.  The expedition training takes place in February, with practice expeditions in March and qualifying expeditions in the summer term.

All students are expected to manage their DofE participation by regular use of their eDofE account.
