Duke of Edinburgh Award

The High School has been involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme for many years. The school is a recognised DofE Operating Authority and runs the award at all levels

The school offer participants the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award by providing support for the Volunteering, Skills, Physical, Residential (Gold only) and Expedition sections.  We passionately believe in the pupils' taking ownership of their award and are delighted at the number of pupils who complete their Gold Award before leaving school.

Important Documents for DofE Participants


Two recent S6 pupils shared their experiences of taking part in DofE Gold Residential activities, an essential part of achieving the overall Gold Award.
