The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.

Our Senior pupils can do a DofE programme at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, leads to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

ESU Public Speaking Team

The LMS Public Speaking Team, comprising students in Year 9-11, competes in the prestigious annual ESU Churchill Public Speaking Competition. It is the largest such contest in England and Wales, with around 400 teams (each comprising a speaker, questioner and a chairperson). The different roles allow students to practice and excel in different skill sets, and the competition’s unique format, which pairs the speaker from one school with the chair and questioner of another, encourages quick thinking and relationship building.

Young Enterprise

The Young Enterprise Company Programme will enable you to experience what it is like to set up and run a student company. It will run during the Michaelmas and Lent terms in Year 12 and you will make all the decisions about your enterprise, from deciding on the name and product to creating a business plan, managing the student company finances and selling the product or service. A range of resources are provided to help manage the company.
In 2022, our Young Enterprise team, Aurum, were winners at the county finals and went on to take the award for sustainability at the regional finals. They created a plant based cookbook using recipes from local businesses. They developed relationships with these local restaurants and cafes to create the cookbook and then worked with a local printing company to get the book printed. They went on to sell out and after they had closed the company they decided to give their individual profits made to the school's Ukraine fund.
Well done to team Aurum, we look forward to seeing what this years company create.
