Duke of Edinburgh Award

Some of our 2017 leavers recently attended Buckingham Palace to receive their Gold Awards.

Congratulations to Sophie, Anna, Joshua, Joe, Arron and Oscar who received their awards at a star studded ceremony.

 

Our current Gold Award pupils recently completed their practice expedition. The team spent two nights camping and walked a total of 50 km over three days in Snowdonia. The group completed a night of wild camping in a sheep field with no amenities and collected their drinking and cooking water from a local stream. The team all did exceptionally well and had great feedback from the expedition leaders at The Conway Centre. The group will complete their assessed expedition in July.
