“Many thanks for organising a superb qualifier for us. The students are still buzzing from their experience” Mr Wilson, Melton Vale College

“Just to say a massive thank you for this year and helping again get our students through their gold.  I appreciate how you help us make it possible by working with our small groups and also how much you look after us whilst we’re up there, not just the kids.  It really is above and beyond.” Mr Marshall, Bromfords School

“Thank-you again, your company’s integrity is incredible – so glad we found you!” Mrs Webster, Northampton School for Girls

DofE for Schools

We will ensure close communication between your DofE Award Manager in school and us, so that the individual needs of your school and pupils are met, as well as complying with the 20 conditions of the DofE Award. We will take responsibility for the safety of your pupils whilst on the hills and deliver excellent training that meets the needs of every group. We only work on the basis of one instructor per group for practice, so your students will get a high input of training. We are happy to come and help you with presentations, assemblies and/or open evening for parents and pupils as well as helping with paperwork you need to complete for your LEA and DofE requirements, including the red and green forms.

We like to build up good relationships with your staff and pupils. Staff are always welcome to be as involved as they wish during the day and see their pupils out on the hills. Likewise, if you need to get a stack of marking done or recover in a warm café, we will leave you in peace while we get on with the job!
