Duke of Edinburgh Award

Litherland High School offers students the opportunity to undertake the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze award.

You achieve your award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you’re going for Gold) – volunteering, physical, skills, expedition and for Gold, a residential ,and the best bit is – you get to choose what you do!

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

The Duke of Edinburgh programme at Litherland will be a real adventure and a challenge, it’s different for each person and everybody will grow from the experience. You’ll make new friends, try new things and have fun!

Then there’s all the other stuff…

…achieving an award will give you skills, confidence and a view on life that everyone is looking for, from employers to colleges and universities.

…you’re getting recognised for doing things you want to do (and may even be doing already).

…you’ll make a difference to other people’s lives and your community, be fitter and healthier, make new friends and have memories to last you a lifetime.

And above all, it’s a great laugh!

Doing your DofE really does give you the skills for life and work.  But don’t take just our word for it – see what these national newspapers say…
