Duke of Edinburgh Award

We are the largest Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme centre in Sefton and support all pupils who take part.

From 1st January 2018 we are changing how we administer the Award in school. We continue to value the Award and believe it gives our pupils opportunities to develop and flourish. We will continue to support expeditions in the school year, and, for Silver and Gold pupils, during school time.

However, we have chosen to focus our school resources on the large number of pupils who enrol on the Bronze Award, and from now on we will only manage the Bronze Award in school.

Pupils who wish to enrol on the Silver or Gold Award have a number of different providers who can co-ordinate the Award for them and we have chosen to recommend South Sefton Open Project, a well-respected local provider.

They can be contacted on:           07879 474199

New applicants can use other providers if they wish. A full list is available from Mrs Riding.

For pupils who wish to enrol on the Bronze Award for the first time this year and in the future, the new D of E Manager is Mrs Jean Riding. She will be available one day a week in school (currently Tuesday from 1.30pm)) in the D of E Office. You can also contact her on the following email address: jr@range.sefton.sch.uk
