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 all of the senior staff.
Applying for a place on DofE
Bronze, Silver and Gold were launched in assemblies during the week commencing 17/9/18. Year 12 students were offered application paperwork via their tutors on 19/9/18. Bronze and Silver paperwork was made available via tutors on 24/9/18. The STRICT deadline for application forms and deposit payments to be returned is Thursday 4 October 2018. If you are struggling with the deposit payment, please contact Mrs Brazil for support. Forms and payments should only be given to Mrs Brazil, Mrs Clark or Mr Dixon, not to any other member of staff. Thank you :-)

HELP! Bromsgrove Junior ParkRun is desperate for volunteers this Sunday morning, 9:40 to 10:40, or they will have to cancel the event. Lots of our @SouthBromsHigh students volunteer but you must contact BJPR to confirm you are volunteering! Find them on Facebook or tweet a reply.
