Go on a Journey! Navigate from A to B safely, learn something and most importantly, have fun! The Duke of Edinburgh Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people. At The Wavell School we are excited and proud to offer our students this opportunity. 

You can take part in DofE if you are between the ages of 14 to 24. We currently run a Bronze Award group for upper school students. Wavell students can apply to join at the end of Y9.
