Royal visit to Harris Academy Tottenham

The Earl of Wessex visited Harris Academy Tottenham last week to present the academy with its licence to deliver
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE).

The Earl was given a tour of the all-through academy, which was recently judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, and met students from primary to sixth form as well as the first fifteen students who will be taking part in
Harris Academy Tottenham’s DofE programme.

The DofE is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading achievement award for young people, and a DofE programme involves volunteering, learning a skill, getting fit, planning and undertaking an expedition, and, at Gold Level, also taking part in a week-long residential. The DofE enables any young person, aged 14-24, to develop key skills for life and work, such as confidence, commitment and teamwork.

Lisa Kattenhorn, Principal of Harris Academy Tottenham, said:

“It was a real privilege for staff and students to meet The Earl of Wessex and for us to receive our DofE licence from him in person. 
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an important part of the extracurricular offer at Harris Academy Tottenham.

“No matter what their background or abilities, the DofE Award recognises a young person’s hard work and commitment. Each stage of the programme develops different skills and qualities, and we hope that taking part will help our students develop into confident and well-rounded citizens, well placed to make a positive contribution to their community and society as a whole. I can’t wait to hear how our first fifteen students get on.”

Peter Fleet, Director of the DofE London, said:

“We are delighted that HRH The Earl of Wessex was able to join the DofE London in celebrating Harris Academy Tottenham becoming a DofE Licensed Organisation. This means the academy can now offer the DofE to young people, irrespective of background, and enable them to transform their lives through their DofE experiences, gaining self-belief and transferable skills.”
