We know from hearing thousands of stories that volunteering has a huge impact on young people. That’s why it’s such an essential part of a DofE programme. 

Whether it’s by giving back to their community, developing a passion for a particular cause, or learning a new skill through their volunteering activity, the Volunteering section changes lives and has a positive impact on communities. 

We’re delighted to share with you this certificate celebrating your DofE group’s volunteering and its impact. 

Participants from Fairfield High School for Girls dedicated 52 hours to volunteering between April 2021 and March 2022, with a social value of £240.24

What is the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

Fairfield High School for Girls offers girls in Year 9 the chance to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. If you want to know more please speak to Mrs Senior, Subject Coordinator for Geography.

The DofE is a life-changing adventure you don’t want to miss.  It’s about going the extra mile ­– learning new skills for work and life, getting fitter, helping others, and exploring the countryside. Adventurous, caring, sporty, creative… however you might describe yourself, the DofE is for you. There are three progressive levels of programmes which when completed leading to a Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Award.  Fairfield High School for Girls offers support up to Bronze Award.

To achieve your Bronze Award, you’ll need to complete your own programme of activities in four sections: volunteering, physical, skills, expedition.

There’s a wide range of activities to choose from ­­– most activities can count towards DofE. Maybe you want to try something completely new? Or get better at something you’re already doing? Your DofE can be whatever you want it to be. We recommend that you choose activities you’ll enjoy – it will make them easier to stick at it.

Activities for each DofE section take a minimum of one hour per week over a set period of time, so they can be fitted in around your studies and life outside of Fairfield. You’ll need to participate regularly and show that you’re committed to your DofE during this time.
