On Tuesday 6th November MGGS celebrated the achievements of our DofE participants at our first award ceremony where certificates, badges and prizes were awarded to 103 of our Bronze, Silver and Gold achievers.

Our guest speaker on the evening was Mr Martin Duffell who is our DofE Award verifier. He has been one of the school governors since 2013 and is Chair of the Resources Committee. He is a senior civil servant working at the HM Treasury and gained an OBE in 2011 for his services to his department.

DofE has really taken off this year at MGGS, we have officially achieved the status of being the largest directly licensed DofE centre in the Southeast region, with nearly 250 participants undertaking the award for 2018-19. 60% of students at MGGS now undertake the Bronze award which is a marvelous achievement and of which we are hugely proud!
