Duke of Edinburgh Award
Toot Hill School has a large and thriving Duke of Edinburgh's Award programme which offers pupils the opportunity to complete the complete DoE pathway – from Bronze, through Silver and onto Gold!
We are fully aware and appreciative of the benefits that DoE qualifications provide young people with. Through completing volunteering, skill, physical and expedition activities, the programme stretches pupils, taking them outside of their comfort zone and providing opportunities for character development. Through these activities, pupils develop a range of admirable qualities - leadership, teamwork, communication and self-organisation to name but a few. They also learn self-discipline and resilience whilst developing self-confidence and compassion towards other people.
DoE is undoubtedly a fun and much sought after enrichment opportunity that universities, employers and apprenticeship providers strongly value. As such, we very much hope pupils decide to join in alongside their academic studies.
