Students return from Duke of Edinburgh expedition

A number of Post 16 and Year 11 students completed their expedition over the period of two days, July 7 & 8, for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. The students had to plan a route to the campsite which involved walking across the moors and navigating using a map and compass.

Once at the campsite they had to pitch their tents and cook a meal for themselves on trangia before walking again the following day to complete the expedition. Students have developed skills in map reading and teamwork as part of the expedition, as well as building their resilience and determination. They have also completed a period of volunteering and physical activities over the past six months which contribute to the award.
