The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be through volunteering, physical activities, life skills and expeditions.

Weatherhead High School is one of the largest Direct Licence Centres on the Wirral. It has a team of dedicated staff and has a base with all the equipment needed for successful achievement of the relevant DofE award. We currently have 150 pupils participating in the programme.
