The DofE programme at Marling School is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. You just need realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by.

Levels

You can do programmes at three levels, which when completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

Sections

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.

You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition and taking part in a residential activity (Gold only).

Our Expeditions 

The Bronze award is available to students in Year 10 with expeditions taking place in the Mendip Hills and the Forest of Dean.

The Silver award is available to students in Year 11 with expeditions taking place on Exmoor and the Breacon Beacons.

The Gold award is available to students in Year 12 with expeditions taking place in the Breacon Beacons and Snowdonia National Park.

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.
