Getting involved with: challenges and activities
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
The DofE is all about gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new things.
Join over 100 students working towards their Silver and Gold Awards. It’s a great way to make new friends and your teamwork and leadership skills will impress future employers and universities.
True Adventure
Each year an intrepid group of students volunteer to join an expedition to a developing country to learn more about the culture and community. They take part in a challenging expedition and also work on a community project which often involves building, decorating and refurbishment to provide amenities for local people. In the summer of 2016 there were expeditions to Tanzania and Bolivia.
More clubs and activities
