Duke of Edinburgh doesn't have grades, its an extra curricular activity (anyone can do it as long as your're under 25) so it won't or shouldn't affect your gpa.
Is it bronze, silver, or gold Duke of Edinburgh your doing?

The only thing that might cause complications is if you don't do the practice and real expedition. Without the expeditions you can't get it because you need these to get the certificate.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is not compulsory. If your school is making you do it they are breaking the rules and it devalues the award. There is nothing your school can really do if you don't complete it, but you can just do the next expedition (at least under the rules of the award you can, but your school appears to be breaking those though...).
