VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh (D of E) Award Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme was founded by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1956. It helps to develop young people for life and work and requires young people to undertake volunteering, physical development, teamwork, practical and social skills …….and many more core foundation skills that are invaluable in adulthood.

Take a look at the videos below which tell you more about the scheme itself and what Amy, one of our students has to say about taking part in the D of E award scheme.

D of E at Vale of York Academy

Vale of York Academy is continuing to go from strength to strength offering its students the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  The D of E Award is an extra-curricular activity which requires determination, motivation and commitment. After several years of running the award Vale of York Academy has nearly 100 students from year 10 and 11 taking part!

Key members of the school staff support our students to maximise the D of E experience; teachers and support staff get involved to assist Mr Rampling, our D of E Co-ordinator, ensuring as many of our students as possible successfully complete of the Award.

What does it involve?

The Duke of Edinburgh Award has three levels:

  • Bronze (aged 14+)
  • Silver (aged 15+)
  • Gold (aged 16+)

Students need to complete a personal programme of activities from these four sections:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad

If you have any questions about the scheme or how you can take part, please contact Mr Rampling.

Our students have had some fantastic experiences during their time on the D of E scheme and we try to get as many photos as we can! Here’s just a few in our photo gallery – please take a look!
