The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
As part of the school’s extra-curricular activities, St Albans Girls' School makes it possible for students to take part in the the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is very popular at St Albans Girls' School. The areas of Skill, Physical Recreation, Volunteering and the Expedition ensure that participants in the scheme gain a wide range of new skills including team work and organisation and enhance their confidence whilst taking greater responsibility for themselves and others. The completion of awards gives participants a sense of achievement in a non-competitive context.
“The DofE can be considered a fundamental part of the ‘Make a Human Being’ kit”
Sir Terry Pratchett OBE, Author
