Duke of Edinburgh Award

DofE is an internationally recognized personal development program, which is a great addition to any young person’s C.V. The experiences pupils gain and the transferrable skills they learn can help them stand out from the crowd and be successful in university, college, apprenticeship and employment applications.

Toot Hill School has a thriving DofE community with pupils able to the complete the full DofE pathway during their time at Toot Hill School and College – from Bronze in Year 9, through Silver in Year 10 and onto Gold in Year 12/13.
