Duke of Edinburgh

Our intrepid adventurers and Duke of Edinburgh students in Forms 10 and 11 undertook their Silver D of E Expedition on the South Downs in July. The students had to plan their own route, prepare their own meals and carry all of their own equipment for the duration of the tour ensuring they were completely self-sufficient from start to finish. Mr Barnes joined them half way through for a catch up and was delighted to receive an email from a resident on the route who said how impressed he was by the helpfulness and politeness of the children who had come to his aid when he was trying to carry some heavy sacks. A proud moment for St. Ed’s. Congratulations to everyone for your hard work, grit and determination.
