The Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Programme requires dedication, motivation and maturity. There are levels ranging from Bronze, Silver and Gold which are accessible dependant on age; all of which provide real adventure. You can do DofE programmes at three levels. Chesterton is proud to offer the Bronze scheme to our students from Year 9.
