Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award at S6F - Making Lifelong Memories





"DofE brought me and my group a lot closer and encouraged us to escape our comfort zone. I met lots of new people. It taught me new social skills, and helped me develop a love for the outdoors."







"Duke of Ed at S6F was a great experience and I felt supported throughout. Everything was always well explained. We had two practice walks in the year and so felt well prepared for the expeditions."






"I really enjoyed the expedition in the Lake District. It was so exciting to finally be able to explore the routes that we had been planning for months beforehand. We saw some beautiful views and even some llamas!"
