Girls work towards three levels of awards from Year 9 upwards.  In the volunteering section, girls help out in the local community e.g. volunteering in charity shops, local animal centres, and youth groups.  They also help out in the junior school running a variety of extra curricular clubs and also support in the nursery. 


The DofE is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, pupils make new friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.


School facilities, resources, transport and teaching staff are utilised for this project.
