Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Qualifying Expedition

Well done to our 51 year 10 students who successfully completed their qualifying expedition over a hot and sunny weekend.

The students were in 9 teams, all self-sufficient for the weekend – carrying everything they would need. The teams walked different routes of approximately 12km (8 miles) each day – although some wandered a bit further, and camped overnight on the Saturday.

Most teams were eager to walk early on the Sunday and were out of their tents by 06:00. After breakfast, and repacking tents and rucksacks, they were on their way before 08:00hrs.

This helped to avoid the rising heat of the afternoon, with most teams reaching their finishing points by 14:00hrs.

This expedition couldn’t have taken place without the support of our volunteers, who ensured the students were safe at main road crossings and topped up with water – so a big thank you to Mrs Chester, Mr Evans, Ms Gemel, Ms Leney, Ms McDonald, Ms Potton and Mrs Steele.

Our next DofE cohort will be recruited in late Saptember.
