Duke of Edinburgh

I previously had no idea what I wanted to do but working towards my DofE made me realise the career path I wanted to pursue and I am now studying towards becoming a qualified youth workerDofE saved my future as I still wouldn’t know what I want to do. It got me out of the house, gave me confidence and developed my life skills. My life has been completely shaped as a result of participating in my DofE.”  - Kyle Kinsella, Bronze and Silver Award holder.

The Duke of Edinburgh award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people. Epsom and Ewell High School is a licenced centre able to deliver and verify its own awards for both Bronze and Silver D of E in year 10 and year 12.

For the Bronze and Silver award, students complete four sections. The sections are as follows:

  • Volunteering (with individuals, with charities or in the community)
  • Physical (sport, dance or fitness)
  • Skills
  • Expedition.

Students organise and complete the first three sections independently. The school then organises three expeditions a year, two to the Surrey Hills for Bronze and two for Silver (A practice one in Ashdown Forest and the final expedition in the New Forest). Preparation for the expeditions include, team building, navigation, camp craft and first aid.
