The Duke of Edinburg Award
As part of our approach to tackling disadvantage at Gateacre we follow a tiered approach.
The 3rd strand encompasses providing extracurricular and enrichment activities. Mr McCallan from the Mathematics Department has recently re-launched The Duke of Edinburgh Award, with expeditions taking place through May-July. The DofE is brilliant way to help our disadvantaged students develop self-esteem and build confidence and we can develop these students even further by allocating key roles in group activities and expeditions.
