Duke of Edinburgh - Offers and Items Wanted

Buying kit for Duke of Edinburgh expeditions can be an expensive and time-consuming business, especially when young adults are still growing and may outgrow their kit within a few years. With the aim of making this process both simpler and less costly for parents, we have launched a new service via this page on the School website.

Working a little like the well-known website Freecycle, we would love parents/guardians the chance to place both WANTED notices for any kit they require or OFFER notices of any kit they no longer need and are happy to part with. In this way you can then exchange your contact details directly with other parents to either donate, exchange, or gain some well-needed expedition equipment.

Key items that are required by pupils on expeditions are:

- Good quality walking boots
- Good quality walking socks
- Good quality waterproof top and bottoms
- Sleeping bags
- Roll mats
- Eating equipment e.g. camping bowl, plate, mug, cutlery etc


For a full kit list and also really useful guide to buying the correct size and correct quality kit, please see the official page D of E website http://www.dofeshopping.org/expedition-kit
