Assemblies have taken place this week to inform students that we are now enrolling for the 2015-2016 year Duke of Edinburgh’s Award participants.  Enrolment forms can be obtained from Mrs Trotter and need to be completed and returned to Mrs Trotter by lunchtime on Monday 19th October.

As outlined to students this week, the rules on age has changed slightly this year, i.e. students starting in Year 9 from September this year are eligible to enrol, even if they have not yet reached the age of 14 – this is great news and we have already received 10 enrolment forms before the above deadline!  So please do not delay and return completed forms to Mrs Trotter by 19th October.

Other DofE News:

Three Sixth Form students (David, Tom and Ben) will be taking part in their Gold practice expedition on Dartmoor during the October half term – we wish them well and look forward to seeing them receive their Gold Award at St James Palace in the near future!

Speaking of which, Leanne Andrews will be attending St James Palace in November to receive her Gold Award and Mrs Trotter has the lucky privilege to be present at this very proud event – pictures to follow later!
