Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the DofE has gone from strength to strength. Guided by the same set of principles and by young people themselves, it’s as relevant today as it was then. The DofE Award was based on Kurt Hahn’s Moray Badge, run by him while Headmaster at Gordonstoun School.
A flexible programme that helps to develop young people for life and work, the numbers speak for themselves: 93% of participants feel that DofE has helped them to work in a team and 84% feel that they have become a more responsible person.
The DofE programme at The Corbet School is co-ordinated by Miss H. Jones and the expeditions take place in the stunning setting of the South Shropshire hills.
Further information on DofE at The Corbet School is available from Miss H. Jones (Teacher of Maths & PE).
