Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

Archives Index

Chipping Norton School started running the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme in the mid 70s and continues to do so today. I have quite a lot of pictures of D of E activities and therefore have given them their own section rather than putting them in the Archives section. This page lists what is currently available, listed, as far as is possible, in chronological order.

I would very much like to hear from anyone who has pictures of D of E activities so that we can add them to the site. Not just pictures - do you have any memories of expeditions you did? If you would like to write an account of them we would also be pleased to add it to the site.
