Resilience, Respect, Integrity, Community.

Duke Of Edinburgh

We are delighted to be able to offer our year 9 and 10 students the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award now that The Ongar Academy has become a licensed program centre.  As the world’s leading youth achievement award, our young people will be given the opportunity to push their personal boundaries, gain new skills and enhance their CV’s and University applications.


The Bronze award not only requires our students to complete an outdoor expedition but also to devote a minimum amount of time focusing on 3 categories:


–  Volunteering section

–  Skills section

–  Physical section


The students at The Ongar Academy are already committing time to all of these categories at school and within the community and the DofE award will allow them to track their contribution and their impact on the people around them.  For more information at the first instance, please access the DofE website at;


Please see the attached documentation for further information:
