Duke of Edinburgh Award

DofE logoThe DofE is a challenging programme of activities designed for young people aged between 14 and 24. Students can enter a programme at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

There are 4 sections at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold.  Lonsdale is currently concentrating on Bronze. Participants select and set their own overall timescales and programme objectives in each of the following areas:


undertaking service to individuals or the community


improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities


developing practical and social skills and personal interests


planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad

Lonsdale's Residential Educational Provision is part of this great scheme and has a group of students participating.  

Our Award Officer is Sheena Harley and he can be contacted via the school office on 01438 726999 option 2, option 5.
