The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme has been a central part of life at South for over 20 years.

We are the largest DofE Centre in the UK, with over 500 students and 75 staff involved every year. Students complete their Awards almost entirely outside curriculum time, and staff give their time voluntarily. Alongside unique events like the Eisteddfod, the DofE scheme sets South apart from all other schools because of the scale and comprehensiveness of the scheme. Students from all backgrounds benefit from their involvement in the Award scheme. They are supported by a staff team that includes teaching assistants, support staff, teachers and most of the senior staff.
