Award Sections‎ > ‎


Everyone taking their Gold DofE Award needs to complete an additional Residential section. You can choose from a range of residential activities – from helping at a National Trust site in the UK to working with children in India.

A residential consists of five days and four nights taking part in a shared, activity with people you don’t really know.

You can source your own residential, but be careful about the costs.  Even charitable organisations have to cover their costs and frequently charge you for food and accommodation.

We run a college residential early in October half in your first year at college.  The aim of our residential is to promote teamwork and leadership skills and is based on physical activities such as mountain walking, orienteering and map work.
