    Enrichment, DofE, Trips & Clubs




    Chace is an extended school. Many before school, lunchtime and after-school learning opportunities are available for our own students and for the local community.

    Drama rehearsals will be taking place throughout the Autumn Term and students will be informed when they are required to attend.



    Duke of Edinburgh's Award

    The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a UK charity that makes a difference to young people’s lives and prepares them for life and work. Over 300,000 young people per year from every possible background take part in DofE programmes to broaden their horizons, develop their leadership skills, learn to work with others, volunteer in their local communities, increase their employability, and prove to themselves they can succeed at a serious challenge.


    First Give Programme

    First Give is an educational school programme which helps young people use their time and talent to improve their community. At Chace, students in Year 9 spend 2 months during Life Skills lessons identify a social issue in our community, engage with a local charity that address them

    Students select a charity and then produce engaging presentations that champions their chosen charity to complete in the School Final in order to complete for a grant for their charities and win £1,000.

    As well as producing a presentation, groups have to get involved in some social action. This ranges from voluntary work, promoting the work the charity and fundraising.

    The final takes place in June were representatives from the charities attended as well as local community representatives which made up the external judging panel.

    At Chace we have taken part in First Give (previously Youth Philanthropy Initiative) for approximately 10 years.
