Duke of Edinburgh

Last Saturday 2nd October, Year 11 students began their three day, two night Silver Duke of Edinburgh Assessed expedition to Brighton, South Downs. Following their practice trip three weeks ago, the students were able to use this trip to demonstrate their newly developed expedition skills. The girls walked well and demonstrated excellent teamwork, navigation and camping skills. The trip was challenging, due to the inclement weather. However, the students showed excellent determination and resilience. Students were relieved to make it to the train station on day three, where they received celebratory sweets with their expedition debrief and quickly made their way back to London where they could take a well-deserved rest. All groups passed their assessed expedition section of their award – well done!
