When will I get my eDofE account and Welcome pack?

Check your school email address for a welcome email and after 3 weeks of logging in to eDofE for the first time, a Welcome pack should then arrive at your home address in the post! (assuming you put in the correct postcode!)

I'm having trouble logging in for the first time?

Once your parents have made the payment on ParentPay an account will be set up for you using your school email address. Check for a welcome email in here with your username and password. If you cant access your school email please visit the IT team (upstairs in MFL block) to get you set up.

 How many in an expedition group? 

Group sizes of 7. 

The aim is for students to get themselves into either a group of 3 or a group of 4.

We will then put a group 3 and a group of 4 together to make up a group of 7. 

(Sometimes groups of  5 and 6 will be made but when we have large numbers at Bronze and Silver we try to minimise the number of groups.)

When is my expedition?

Why hasn’t my activity been approved?

The usual reasons are:
