We offer students from Year 9 upwards the opportunity to complete their Duke of Edinburgh's Award - known as the 'DofE' for short.
Some 150 students set off on Duke of Edinburgh expeditions each year (whatever the weather!), armed with rucksacks and compasses and ready to face the challenges ahead. The popularity of DofE at Bristol Free School means that many progress from hiking in Cheddar Gorge to wild camping in the Brecon Beacons as they work through Bronze and Silver to the Gold Award.
DofE has a strong community service strand and the students also show remarkable energy for charitable causes, learning about being responsible citizens as they acquire new skills.
For more information on the scheme, please visit dofe.org
If you have any questions about how the scheme runs at BFS, please contact the school for the attention of Miss Carr and Miss Gould.
