See PERKY criteria for details.

  • NEW Bronze 3 Years: Thursday assembly, then Concert Hall 1:30pm Thurs to “find out more” and pick up enrolment letters ; enrolment decision and letter required soon after and certainly before Half Term; Bronze groups will meet every Thursday lunchtime this term to plan first practice expeditions May4-5: muster in Concert Hall each Tuesday 1:20pm prompt.

DEADLINE for students to complete and submit all AWARD sections correctly on  eDofE  FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14TH (First Aid 4th years have special extension to 14 March, so long as all other sections are complete by 14 Feb)

Apologies for this rash of deadlines.  They are necessary so that everyone is clear on what is required and by when to avoid disappointment and permit success for those who are keen to get their award.  As usual, if there are any individual snags or problems, please contact MrC at school: email, DofE Office open every lunchtime and for a while after school.  Also, please keep in touch with dofe on Twitter @RGSdofe , Facebook and this blog!
