Salesian is proud to operate one of the largest and most successful cohorts in Surrey, offering bespoke, in house training from our excellent D of E team. Click here for Key Dates. We offer D of E for Year 9 (Bronze), Year 10 (Silver) and Year 12 (Gold). All levels can be completed within a year.
There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold, which you can explore below:
Students aim to improve in an area of sport, dance or fitness.
Students develop practical skills, social skills and personal interests.
Students plan and train for the completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or overseas.
At Gold level, students must do an additional fifth residential section, which involves staying and working away from home doing a shared activity.
