Posted by SJV - Friday 10 July 2020

The School has received a lovely email this week from the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, presenting us with a certificate of ‘social value’: confirming our students have contributed an amazing 1,690 hours of voluntary service to the community from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. Across the South West DofE participants have contributed 331,994 volunteering hours to help others, which equates to a social value of over £1,440,000. We are very proud of our DofE students and their part in this incredible achievement.

Joe Mercer, DofE Operations Officer, said: “At a time when volunteering and supporting the local community could not be more important, Heather Thompson, DofE South West Director, has asked me to pass on her thanks to you, your DofE Manager, staff volunteers, and finally your incredible participants who have made, and continue to make, such a positive impact on their local community.”
