The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme is a big part of Lees Brook. We are proud that over half of our students leave Year 11 having achieved the Bronze or Silver Award. This makes Lees Brook one of the largest licenced organisations for the award in Derbyshire.
Lees Brook is one of the largest providers for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in Derbyshire
What some of our Students say about the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award?
“Before D of E, I lacked confidence and I felt uncomfortable talking to people I didn’t know. Through volunteering in a charity shop, I have grown in confidence. I am now completing my Silver award and volunteer at Bronze D of E training sessions”
“It was a fun, new experience to enjoy with friends”
“D of E was a really fun and memorable experience. It taught me a lot of skills that I won’t forget later in life. I would advise and recommend you to take this opportunity as you won’t get anything like it again”
“I loved D of E so much, it was a really fun experience that helped me make new friends and become more confident in myself”
“D of E helped me to work as a team and lead”
