We are delighted that St. Francis’ College is top among all independent schools in the country for Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards that have been achieved this year. We are also top among all schools in North Hertfordshire for the completion rate.
Despite the difficulties of the last year the girls at all three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold, of the Award have adapted well to the changes in the DofE programme.
Thanks to the help of school staff and volunteers we have completed a successful programme of expeditions at all levels both practice and assessment.
“I am so proud of our DofE success. It really helps our students to achieve more than they thought possible, to value themselves and their abilities and to develop lifelong transferable skills.” Mrs Bronwen Goulding, B.A.Hons, MA (Ed Mgmt) B.A.Hons, NPQH, Headmistress.
