Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh Award programmes are open to 14 to 24 year olds. The Award is delivered in Jersey’s schools and youth organisations by Directly Licensed Centres. Students can complete an award in the bronze, silver and gold categories. The DofE programme at Grainville School is led by Mr Bennett, Assistant Headteacher email@example.com

Grainville Army Cadet Force
Grainville is proud to be the only 11-16 state school in Jersey to have its own detachment as part of the Jersey Militia Army Cadet Force. This places Grainville in a select group of only 60 state schools in the UK with its own cadet force.
Jersey ACF has two detachments, one based at the Army Reserve Centre on Mount Bingham and another at Grainville School.
The Jersey ACF is a youth organisation catering for 12 to 18 year olds whose aim is to develop young people in adventurous training, teamwork and leadership. Although affiliated with the British Army, and locally the Jersey Field Squadron, the ACF is not a recruitment arm of the Army. The ACF undertakes a number of activities ranging from camping and field craft to parachuting, as well as navigation, drill, shooting, field cooking, first aid, climbing and much more.
