Congratulations and well done to the students that have recently achieved their bronze and silver Duke of Edinburgh award.
The expeditions were at Walesby Scout camp where students have been erecting and sleeping in tents, cooking on a trangia, map reading and walking. Not to mention having lots of fun and laughs along the way.
Going on the expedition has given students the chance to have an adventure, work as a team, and challenge themselves whilst on their DofE journey.
In September we will have another group of students who are hoping to achieve their gold DofE award, Holyrood palace here we come!
The Duke of Edinburgh programme has been running for a number of years and in the past our students have achieved Bronze and Silver Awards. We are proud to announce that six of our students achieved their full Gold Award.
Congratulations to six post 16 students who have successfully completed their Gold Award.
They spent four days and three nights camping and walking on average 10 miles per day in and around the area of Ripon which is in North Yorkshire. Also included was a field study on Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water garden.
We are extremely proud of this achievement especially when they went to Holyrood House in Edinburgh to receive their award.
