Humberston Academy

Humberston is an outstanding academy proud of our exceptionally high standards and traditional ethos. We offer a diverse enrichment programme in order to develop skills outside of the classroom.


Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Humberston Academy.

As a David Ross Education Trust (DRET) academy we believe that enrichment can help to enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our students for an ever-changing world.

Secondary enrichment is carefully selected to equip young people with additional experiences and skills that will not only give them a head start in their adult life but also enhance their CVs, applications and interviews in competitive careers and higher education markets.

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Founded by His Royal Highness in 1956, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is widely recognised as the world's leading youth achievement award.
The DofE was designed to challenge young people to attain standards of achievement and endeavour in a wide variety of active interests – to serve their communities, experience adventure and to develop and learn outside the classroom.
Please see below, the registration forms that should be used to sign your child up for the Duke of Edinburgh, Bronze Award.  This wonderful and extremely worthwhile initiative will truly benefit all who get involved and set them apart from the crowd when applying for college, university, apprenticeships and jobs.
