Duke of Edinburgh

Our intrepid adventurers and Duke of Edinburgh staff undertook a three-day Silver D of E Practice Expedition on the South Downs earlier this term. The students had to plan their own route, prepare their own meals and carry all of their own equipment for the duration of the three days ensuring they were completely self-sufficient for the duration of their walk. When asked for a summary, expedition leader Mr Warren quoted, “8 set off, blue skies, cold nights, South Downs, fab views, home for Saturday tea and medals, only 6 returned, two lost on the way!” (for legal reasons, two returned early due to injury!) Congratulations to everyone for your hard work, grit and determination.
