“Thank you so much for the time given to the DofE Bronze students this weekend and the trial-run weekend! We are really pleased our daughter took on the challenge and despite being one of the slowest walkers (and possibly ‘challenging’ in her attitude!) we know she had a great time walking with her friends and camping! (…even in the rain!). We know that these experiences can’t go ahead without the support of staff and we are very appreciative of the time you gave and ask if you could please extend our thanks to the other members of staff who helped out.”

Duke of Edinburgh's Assessment: June 2019

On Saturday 8th June, 70 year 9 students set off from Southborough Common in search of Adamswell Campsite in Groombridge. The students were completing their DofE assessment weekend.

Luckily the weather held off and we were blessed with sunshine and mild temperatures throughout the weekend. It was amazing to see the students overcome various issues over the day and then gel as a group at the campsite. Although there were some tired legs and aching feet all of the students completed the assessment and arrived back at Southborough on the Sunday. The DofE team would also like to say a big thank you for all the positive comments from students and parents regarding the weekend.
