D of E

The ethos of the DofE is fully in step with what we are seeking to achieve educationally; to educate young men and to equip them to have the courage to use the understanding they gain from this, whilst challenging themselves, developing teamwork and leadership skills, make friends and have fun. 

MGS is one of the most successful Duke of Edinburgh Centres in the North of England, with over 180 boys each year taking part in the award. This comprises of around 100 Bronze, 50 Silver and 30 Gold.

Boys complete their expedition on foot at Bronze, but have the option of walking or canoeing at Silver and Gold.
