Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is Growing

Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Trips and Excursions

Over half term, 90 students set out on practice expeditions as part of their Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards. 60 pupils from Year 11 with a Silver Award in sight and 50 pupils from Year 10 aiming to get Bronze Awards ventured into the depths of the Derbyshire Peak District in preparation for their full expedition next year.

Mrs Dixon added, 'The Trent Duke of Edinburgh Scheme over recent years has burgeoned, with very large numbers of our students now involved in the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. My Congratulations to all those who completed their training expeditions over the half term break'. 

We also have three students who have recently gained their gold awards. Congratulations to Emma Duxon, Katy Trinick and Hannah Jackson. They will be invited to a Derbyshire presentation at County Hall, Matlock and after Christmas, they will travel to St James’s Palace in London for the official Gold Award Presentation, perhaps with the Duke himself.

Trent now has over 200 students taking part in the scheme encouraging community service, independence and leadership adding tremendous value to their extracurricular portfolio.

Good luck to all students taking part in the scheme!
