BCA is delighted to announce that we have received a grant from The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) Diamond fund – enabling us to reach and support more disadvantaged young people who want to do their DofE at BCA

Thanks to this fantastic offering, we will be kitting out our expedition stores and promoting the DofE award to more people – providing more of our young people the opportunity, which may not otherwise have been open to them, to develop ‘soft’ skills and attributes for life and the workplace.

Update 26/3/2018

We are holding an expedition training day on Saturday 28/04/18 for years 9 and 10. This whole day course will teach the students outdoor skills that they can then use in the field on their practice expedition, readying themselves for their assessed expedition. Letters went to tutors on Friday, please return asap so we know numbers.


Registration for next year will open in June.

If you have any questions about the award please get in contact or call and ask for Mr Ritchie on 01522 880400
