DofE Bronze Qualifying Expedition

As you know the final qualifying expedition for our Year 9 Bronze DofE cohort is on Thursday 21st – Friday 22nd July.

This was originally the last 2 days of term but as a result of the Queen’s jubilee we are now breaking up on Thursday 21st July.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to move the DofE expedition as our expedition provider is fully booked up for the summer term, so the expedition will remain on Thursday 21st – Friday 22nd July.

As this is a recent change to the school calendar, it shouldn’t cause any problems but we wanted to clarify and explain the situation nonetheless. Please be mindful of this if intending to change any summer holiday plans.

DofE Pre-Expedition Training Day

Dear Parent or Carer,

Important Reminder:

Your child is working towards achieving their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and will be undertaking pre-expedition training this week.

Please click here to read the letter which was sent before the Christmas break. Students must read the Expedition Handbook here before their training day so they are fully prepared.

Wednesday 5th January – Year 9 Bronze students with surnames A – H

Thursday 6th January – Year 9 Bronze students with surnames I – Z

Friday 7th January – Year 10 Silver, Year 10 Bronze and Year 12 Gold students

Please continue to check your Gateway app regularly; this will remain the primary means of communication.

Thank you.

Year 10 DofE Silver

Notice about Y10 DofE Silver for students who’ve signed up or are thinking about signing up

Due to numbers who have signed up for Gold and Silver, Get Outside The Classroom now need to combine the Gold and Silver Moel Famau expedition training days across the weekend of  29th/30th January. The Gold training day will not change, but it will mean the Year 10 Silver students will now be doing their training day on Sat 29th Jan and not Sun 30th Jan as the original letter said.

If this new date poses a problem, please get in touch with Ms Dixon (ndixon@lymmhigh.org.uk) so we can process a refund. We apologise for any inconvenience.

DofE 2021-2022

The sign-up window for DofE 2021-22 is currently open and closes on Friday 10th December 2021.

If you’d like to sign up this year, please return the consent form and medical form to the School Shop and pay the £100 deposit on Parent Pay by this date.
