Duke Of Edinburgh

Southfield School is proud to be a Directly Licensed Centre for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. The internationally recognised scheme is available to all young people aged between 14 and 25.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new activities. At the same time, you’ll gather friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.

You can choose the activities that motivate you (many are already available at school as extra-curricular options or things you do personally outside of school) and go on your own personal journey. We know from other participants that the DofE helps you stand out from the crowd when you apply for university places and future jobs. To find out just how much a completed DofE Award can make you stand out from the crowd, have a look at the ‘DofE and Employability’ flyer downloadable below.
