Duke of Edinburgh


The College’s thriving Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme enables students to develop their physical skills, knowledge, leadership and teamwork.

These qualities are highly sought after by universities and employers.

Students demonstrate perseverance, resilience and determination to complete a range of challenges and expeditions and are supported every step of the way by our dedicated Duke of Edinburgh’s Award leader, Richard Bailey.

In 2019, Sir John Deane’s students achieved 87 Gold and 27 Silver Award.
