Glenmoor and Winton Academies offer Year 9 and 10 students a chance to participate in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE). The DofE programme has been successful in enhancing school learning and achievement, securing personal and social development and encouraging good citizenship. The Award is recognised internationally and is well regarded by Higher Education establishments and employers.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award gives opportunities for personal development and achievement through community and social involvement, adventure, and the discovery of new talents and interests. The programme is modular and has three Award levels. Each level consists of four sections which prove commitment, fitness, tolerance of others and teamwork. You will recognise all of these qualities as those held in high esteem in our society.
